The invevitable FBOP and what to do about it.

You've all had it happen to you. You saw it coming and couldn't do anything about it until it was too late. Then you didn't have the heart to pass it to someone else. Now, I'm here to tell you how to avoid the FBOP. That's right, the Flaming Bag O'Poo.

My creative thought of the day really surrounds some short term strategies to avoid the FBOP:

1) If the attempt is made in person, suddenly begin speaking in tongues and ignore the handoff.
2) If the attempt is on the phone, immediately hang up and dial in after a 5 minute "underground parking garage exit" interlude.
3) If you can't avoid it, receive it and find a minion to quickly "assign" it to.
4) If you are alone, immediately spill your drink on them and run.

How would you avoid the FBOP?
