More than meets the eye: Making bad jokes about serious situations

Coworker 1, rushing back in after unsuccessful attempt to leave: Don't go outside. It's a mess out there.

Coworker 2, still working at desk: At Grand Central? Yea, a transformer blew up.

Coworker 1: Is that what happened? They were chasing us out. Some official type guys were running around saying, "Get out, a plane crashed into the building!"

Coworker 2, unperturbed and still typing: No, no. It was just a transformer.

Me:...Well, you know, it'd both technically be kinda true if it was like Starscream know what? Nevermind.

Cowroker 2, slightly chortling: No,'s funny...
