Seminar day

I'm at a management seminar today. Already an on-slaught of
motivational slogans.

Trying to be positive but I'm always skeptical if these things, styled
after self-help gurus or camp sing-a-longs.

Yay lunch on state street?

Hm. That font and formatting doesn't really motivate me.

I wanted to say that as well, but was unsure how long mr. Bunnyman was working on this.

To be honest, it reminds me of those Youtube titles people make on the fly before they show off something that you wish you weren't watching.

Oooooh... I missed the part where abm MADE this slide. I could have been way more mean about it, then.
I feel like I've just missed a golden opportunity.

He didn't make the slide... he's AT a management conference thingy... participating. Not presenting. Lucky duck.

Thank god. I was one step away from asking him if he was going to show photos of him showing off myspace photos or a poorly-lit party video as soon as the scrolling text ends.

I know he's better than that, but ouch! That just looks bad. Even the formatting, as mentioned, does not seem to emphasize anything. I'm surprised there's no excess of ellipses.

Nah, I'm the one who uses an excess of ellipses. That's just me.

Everytime I look at that blue screen in its Comic Sans-ish format, I get flashbacks of amateur Youtube videos done by hipsters who should have never been given access to a technology that spams people with their poorly-presented exploits, usually accentuated with an unnecessary ellipse or five during the intro.

Using simple language in a seminar? Shame on you. You'll just confuse all those people there by not waving a vocabulary-injected phallus into their faces like everyone else does at these things.

I'm sure if he were in charge of the seminar, he'd certainly be waving the vocab-injected phallus... Though, maybe, since they knew he'd be there, they realized that his was just bigger, and decided to take the simple route.

Ahhhh Seminars. Hardly ever any fun.

Okay, here's what you do...

Go eat 50 chicken wings on state street. Don't wash your face. Then come back and make a big deal out of how you ate more chicken wings than you ever have in your whole life. Leave big greasy red handprints on everything and make combinations of moaning, gurgling, and burping noises punctuated by reminding people just how many chicken wings there were and how awesome you are. Then go take a huge crap. THEN tell everyone about how big the crap you took after eating that many chicken wings was and how it smelled faintly of buffelo sauce and how you should call world record people because you ate a ton of freakin' chicken wings.

If that doesn't motivate people to take the lead, nothing will and they should be fired.

You are really strange.
zesty_pinto From: zesty_pinto Date: February 20th, 2008 07:05 pm (UTC) (Link)
assfingers has taught you well.

Too well, methinks.
nathan_lounge From: nathan_lounge Date: February 20th, 2008 07:19 pm (UTC) (Link)
If I learn nothing else from Mr. Fingers, "a giant chicken wing induced poop" will be enough.
