Farook from Accounting doesn’t subscribe to the whole notion of small talk. Or, it would appear, hard work.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen him working. He seems to be one of those people that put all of their effort into looking busy rather than actually working.
To me, that always seems like more effort that just doing your job.
Farook is good at acting busy. And as of today, I understand why.
Because today I “Googled” Farook.
And today I discovered that Farook from Accounting is active in community theatre.
And when I say “active” in community theatre, I mean “really” active.
I’ll admit it. I was surprised.
I watched a YouTube clip of him as Willy Loman and Biff in a no budget production of Death of a Salesman.
Farook has an unusual acting style. He mostly screams. And his hands never stop moving. He did a lot of mini karate chops.
It was very entertaining.
Farook also wrote, produced, directed, and starred in his one man musical show Pirates Of The Office Pen.
The video of him singing “I Am The Very Model of a Modern Major Accountant” has to be seen to be believed.
The most amazing thing is that he’s got to be the world’s only writer, actor, singer, producer and director who doesn’t talk about himself at the office.
And that’s a talent.
