MMCY: What, My Middle Name is D*****

Some of you may rightly suspect me of clandestine operations for infiltrating the sacred space of the Jen Jen Chang Chiang blog from outside the Google fold. Let's just say I had help from a rogue operative on the inside. Yes, one of your very own is a mole.

I was tapped by this mole to refocus the blog on its foundational purpose: slight and continuous humiliation of Michael Chang for the amusement of man, woman, child and beast alike. For it has been proven that there is no creature in God's creation who can resist the humor in MMCY's abasement.

Therefore, it would likely interest the readers of this blog that I've acquired compromising knowledge regarding MMCY's most carefully guarded secret. I know what the mysterious 'D' in Michael D. Chang stands for....

This has long been a topic of speculation ranging from D'Artagnan to Duk-Young, but I don't want to give it up so easily, so I thought I'd kick it out for comments and solicit the team's best guesses to see if the crowd really is wise.

I think everyone has been aware that the office has a fly problem. This is because everyone is a slob. Banana peels, apple cores, and the occasional cereal bowl are lazily left about with food residue thinly painted on forks, knives, and spoons. Keyboards and mice are usually the first casualties in cleanliness, with micro-crumbs interspersing with dust and grim which, over time, slowly degrades the fine print on the keys. This is followed by computer screens with seemingly impossible mini-stains (how did food get from the desk, to the top left corner of the screen?). It's an unfortunate by-product of eating meals at one's desk. However, when you get liquids involved, uh oh.

It started in the morning, I noticed . . . more flies than usual floating about. I was pretty swamped in the 1st half of the of the day so didn't figure it out until I saw a cup on Jen W's desk. Nervously, I tapped it. Calmly, flies buzzed out. Inside was a petri dish of . . . things. Here's an edited (for brevity and effect) conversation that ensued when Jen W was confronted, conveniently on the other side of the country:

JC: jen
there is a cup on your desk
that has mold
and flies swarming around
JW: oh god. what cup?
JC: the flies are bothering michael
what the heck is it?!
JC: 'a fly just crawled underneath my computer'
JC: 'there is a layer of skin'
JC: 'its like a caramel coffee'
JW: are these quotes from michael
JC: yes
JC: 'its like mixing with her saliva and creating new life'
JC: hes going to take a picture of it
and blog about how you are contaminating the workplace
not the blog!
JC: 'she should be horrified'
