Ray, a friend who appreciates irony, introduced me to Despair, Inc. and its droll humor. We marketing gurus (aka marketing divas) can order a calendar with this saying on the front cover:
Marketing: Because making it look good now is more important than providing adequate support later.
Or if you're tired of hearing execs endlessly chatting up the benefits of teamwork, how about this Despair quotation:
Teamwork: A few harmless flakes working together can unleash an avalanche of destruction.
Tis the season to smile and poke a little fun at tired business truisms. Enjoy!
