Consistent with how these fridge magnets are normally employed, the majority of them were initially randomly scattered or strung together in lame attempts to produce something salacious; SOFT WOMAN PASSION CANDY FLOW seemed to be about par for the course as idle passers-by wasted a little work time rearranging the letters. This was the status quo until one someone decided to use the fridge magnets as an evangelical platform.
There's a non trivial conservative Christian element at the company; they have their own mailing list (the membership of which is hidden from non-members; rather strange that), they gather for prayer meetings in a board room once a week, and so on.
So I was not unduly surprised when, one morning, a large space in the center of the scattered magnets had been cleared out and the message GOD IS GOOD had been prominently and eye-catchingly arranged there.
For about a week there was a kind of disbelieving freeze in the fridge magnet patterns as would-be idlers absorbed the message obviously decided against doing any fridge-magnet-fidgeting. But that was never going to last, and before long the fightback started.
At first random acts of destruction were perpertrated on the pious message: it's contents were simply scattered across the metal surface, the clear patch erased. With commendable dedication, GOD IS GOOD was unfailingly rearranged the next morning by the person or persons unknown. If it was me siding with the minions of darkness, I would simply have binned the divine noun and ended the matter there, but GBH, gentle reader, was merely an observer.
Predictably (and in my opinion rather unimaginatively), the heathens next tried word substitution as a means to break the deadlock. MOIST IS GOOD announced the fridge one morning, GOD IS DARK another. Yet again, the faithful were unstinting in their corrective efforts, undaunted by adversity, unflagging in their dedication. The infidels, initially enthusiastic, began running out of steam after a month or so, until GOD IS GOOD went unmolested for almost a whole week.
This respite didn't last long before a cunning new tactic began: what the engineer in me saw as adding noise to the signal. One sunny morning I arrived to find a fridge that had two eye-catching messages: GOD IS GOOD had been joined by BREEZE AT BEACH. This lasted two days before it was rather half-heartedly pushed over to the edge of the fridge door (but not broken up); the godly magnet arrangers clearly wanted it gone but felt somewhat guilty at pettishly removing such an innocuous and appropriately summery message. The very next morning it was back there right next to GOD IS GOOD, and there it stayed for almost a week.
In hindsight, that was the defining moment in the campaign, and by leaving the secular message in its prominent position, the Christians had opened the door for a rapid defeat, as further denial-of-service messages started to appear. One week after the first appearance of BREEZE AT BEACH, someone added SMILE HAPPY PEOPLE. There was one further attempt at restoring the solo supremacy of GOD IS GOOD, followed the next morning by all three messages reappearing along with a fourth, CANDY CARAMEL MARSHMALLOW. Several more appeared over the next few weeks.
That is how the situation stands today, arguably a tactical victory for the forces of darkness. If there is further action, rest assured k5 that your man on the scene will keep you updated as this gripping drama unfolds.
