Honest to Bod

What can you do, if a coworker refuses to bathe? Why not have a summertime party and solve the issue with a bit of fun?

Frank Stank –
Limericked Verse for a Stench That’s Worse

A very strange fellow named Frank
Was rank. To be honest, Frank stank.
From his stinky shirt
Pandemic alert
Sent colleagues to plot out a prank.

Intending to be less than cruel,
They partied beside a fresh pool –
As quick as a wink,
Tossed Frank in the drink.
And his stench, it started to shrink.
