told an awkward joke in group setting that made everyone feel uncomfortable?

Sounds like you'll fit in just fine around here.

I'm trying to imagine my reaction if I heard such a thing at a fun-fact introduction. For myself, I think I would laugh, just to be polite, but also, I think, it is rather silly, but not offensive.

what kind of ridiculousness is this by putting people on the spot to tell a "fun fact"? i'd be racking my brain not being able to think of anything other than I'm the number one poster on the ao. maybe i'm not a fun person. it's like I need to make up a fun fact where there isn't one.

I always interpreted these fun fact queries to mean what you like to do as a hobby outside of work.
