without any knowledge or expertise?

our "Spot" the Safety Hazard campaign.

2006-03-27 Well, I'm no expert, but this is obviously a good
one of these.

lemur analogies.

2006-04-19 Gaaa!!! The stupidity is leaping off the page

2006-04-19 Does anyone around here know how to say a simple
"this won't work"?

2006-04-23 Your job title will be "Director of Unnecessary
and Special Projects."

2006-04-29 Please leave your cell phones behind, as well as
anything else that might let you signal for help.

2006-05-11 I don't have a checkbox for that so I'll just
write in "loser."

2006-05-25 Now... I know how much you hate the phrase "in
lieu of a raise"...

2006-06-04 This calls for some generic leadership.

2006-06-11 You'd do it because your coworker asked you to.

2006-06-17 Give me a minute to install my management
