Supasoak Dat Hoe

You didn’t really think he said “Superman that, Ohhhh” did you? I’ve enjoyed and cringed silently as I’ve watched people sing along with and dance to Soulja Boy’s Crank That having no idea what he was talking about. It really struck home when I was at a family reunion watching kids 4, 5, and 6 years old doing the dance and singing along while being encouraged by the adults. If they only knew.

Management Lesson 6

A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field. While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Moral of the story: Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy, not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend, and when you’re in deep shit, it’s best to keep your mouth shut!

The iPhone

We’ve come to a strange point in time when a company restricts how many of their product the customer can buy and will not let them pay cash for the product.

This was the sentiment when Apple made it so customers could not buy more than 2 iPhones and could not pay cash for them. At first I thiought the not accepting cash portion was illegal, but apparently the “This note is legal tender for all debt, public and private” message written on money truly only applies to debt, not consumer purchases.

Making Sense of Football

A guy took his blonde girlfriend to her first football game. They had great seats right behind their team’s bench. After the game, he asked her how she liked the experience.

“Oh, I really liked it,” she replied, “especially the tight pants and all the big muscles, but I just couldn’t understand why they were killing each other over 25 cents.”

Dumbfounded, her date asked, “What do you mean?”

“Well, they flipped a coin, one team got it and then for the rest of the game, all they kept screaming was: ‘Get the quarterback! Get the quarterback!’ I’m like…Helloooooo? It’s only 25 cents!!!!
