|The scene at right is hidden waaaaay at the bottom of the e-mail, and I'm guessing that most people didn't see it. I think I've stolen the second punchline idea from Tom Toles. Either way, I'm going to keep doing it.|
Anyway, our facility is hosting the annual Client Conference, so people from various banks will touring the building tomorrow and Friday. Casual Friday is cancelled (which I don't particularly care about), and we've received two e-mails asking us to tidy up our desks as much as possible. Nobody will be walking through this area of the building (probably), but you can't be too careful. There are some politically polarized items at my desk that might potentially offend the sort of people who will be touring tomorrow: my Homeland Security Action Play Set (complete with revolver and billy club!), the picture of Prezident Bush as Alfred E. Newman, and the "Proud to be an American" button which equates Ronnie Reagan, Dicky Nixon, Joey McCarthy, and Georgie W. Bush.
I should probably take them down, but I won't.
You have to choose your battles, and as long as the cartoon depicting Dick Cheney forcing John Edwards to commit a sex act (caption: "Squeal like a pig, boy.") is kosher to display in your cube, those things are staying up there. I have, however, taken down the WOW certificates, which I've never been entirely comfortable with anyway. This leaves a big gap on my wall. I think my personal autograph from Mr. McFeely is due for more prominent placement.
