Back in university I wrote a parody paper about a robot that goes to the cinema and watches movies for you to provide you with liner notes so you can participate in watercolor talk with your colleagues at work.

@map as a non-native english speaker, i had immediately assumed or interpreted that "watercolor talk" is a metaphor for "non solid", "non deep" , "shallow", "non seroius topic"'ish talk... wondering if that interprettion is somehow compatible with "watercooler talk" 🤔

@aslmx i guess the German equivalent would be "Kaffeeküchenklatsch", so yes, pretty much.
