Hello folks. How are you doing? I was wondering what are some of the funniest Zoom backgrounds you've seen. There's gonna be a contest in my office and it appears there will be an actual gift. I like gifts. I'm thinking of putting this one and just not show my face for most of the meeting. Any input is appreciated.

I think it’s hilarious when someone’s zoom background is an image of themselves looking over their shoulder

likefunny

That did make me laugh just by thinking about it. But idk if it's funnier when you know/have talked to the person in question. This meeting will have more than 200 people in it, so I'm not sure how funny it will be for those who don't know me.

If it's not client facing, I might put something more sardonic than getting a snack. "Please stand by, filling the emptiness created by this project with carrots and hummus" 🙃

I saw someone with The Office (from the show) as theirs.

I generally use that one and I love it. But idk if it's a gift winning background. 🤔

Funny!

One of our folks has a zoom photo of himself that is a pretty realistic size and is taken in his normal zoom background, so most of the time you don’t realize it’s a photo and just think he’s intently focused on the meeting.

Weird question: I’ve always been a very sensitive, extroverted-introvert and got scared of the idea of moving to a big city like NYC because the people have a reputation of being tough, even though it’s a dream of mine.

Is this just luck or are people in the big apple actually understanding and compassionate people to work/live with?
