Oh God!!! A new manager has come up with the brilliant and inspiring idea of redecorating our workspaces over the Thanksgiving break with those insipid motivational posters, i.e,. a group rowing a shell into the sunset with the tag line:

"There's nothing we can't do if we pull together!"

This type of approach is just so patronizing and no replacement for face-to-face discussion and problem-solving (which he is in mortal fear of).

We are tempted to slowly replace the posters with ones from this site and see if he notices the difference. http://www.despair.com/

I'd like to dedicate this to my ex-wife.

This is from me and your three other ex-husbands too.

You mean that bear travelled a thousand miles just to get that one fish? I guess that is pretty bad.
