My last post was by far the biggest hit, comment-wise. Not many participants, but the furious exchange of arguments and counter-arguments, the tactical thrusts and folds by all involved, and the ever-shelled peacekeeper in the middle kept spirits high and watchers around the world off the edge of their seats.
My acknowledgments to the common sense of my vast fan base ( hi chris! hi george! ) for not getting involved. As the saying goes: "wouldn't touch it with a 10 - foot pole"
As for me, I got the pole stuck up my tail section, metaphorically speaking, else I'd duck like the rest of you. However, this vivid exchange brought to mind some good, old-fashioned vintage insulting, which I would like to share with the rest of you.
Copying and Pasting is not as much fun as it used to, so see for yourselves.
PS. Yes, I now have learned to stop picking my nose.

Corporate Training is a form of torture consisting of immobilizing the victim's brain on his or her chair with the head inclined downwards, and then pouring bullshit over the face and into the thinking passages. By forced cretinism and iteration of nonsense the subject experiences despair and is caused to believe they had better die. It is considered a form of torture by legal experts, politicians, war veterans, intelligence officials,military judges, and human rights organizations. As early as the Spanish Inquisition it was used for interrogation purposes, to punish and intimidate, and to force confessions.
In contrast to submerging the head face-forward in work, corporate training precipitates a gag reflex almost immediately. The technique does not inevitably or in all cases cause lasting physical damage. It can cause extreme pain, dry intoxication, damage to lungs, brain damage from oxygen deprivation, other physical injuries including broken bones due to struggling against the chair, lasting psychological damage or, ultimately, death. Adverse physical consequences can start manifesting months after the event; psychological effects can last for years.
'Nuff said by the experts. I'll just add the little cherry-on-top.
The subject was our brand new uelsioning tool. At least, so insisted the trainer...
