This was one of those times you should have invoked Logan's Law (speaking of 
Laws)  (2 points for the first one to quote it)

Being responsible for two HR memos was not nearly as interesting as it 
sounds.  One was, 'Thou shalt not wear sweats'. (long dull story). The 
other, I was the one who quietly went to the supervisor and said, "There is 
a rumor that someone in the other end of office has a handgun in her purse 
and it's got everyone in a tizzy.  Could you track it down and either 
officially deny the rumor or tell everyone it's been dealt with?".  I wasn't 
trying to be a snitch but anyone who has ever seen a bunch of 
cubicle-dwellers going into a gossip-tizzy around the water cooler has only 
an inkling of what  it was like right next to my desk as I tried to work. 
The resulting new rule was, "Thou shalt leave thy weapons in thy car."

Only then did I remember that I had once brought in a six foot real steel 
spear and left it by my desk for eight hours for safekeeping the day I was 
going straight from work to a demo......
