Am I the only one to notice that Wally's ultimate purpose might be to have the PHB start making friends with his employees, and so he will have better chances for snagging a raise if he "accidentaly" bumps the PHB in a corridor?
@High Priest Mikhal: Safety and Medicine, two modern developments that, while they are nice for individuals, are bad for the gene pool as a whole. Another disturbing trend: The more educated a population is, the fewer children they have. Therefore hillbillies have a disproportionately large effect on the gene pool.
This reminds me of a George Carlin observation about how all the emphasis on safety is thinning the gene pool. "The kid who's stupid enough to shove marbles up his nose doesn't live to have kids of his own. Think of it as passive eugenics." I know I'll get a lot of negatives for that, but I can't help but agree. People dumb enough to believe in chain letters, like the PHB, deserve any self-fulfilling prophecy of death and disaster they get.
But then if the idiots all died out, who'd take the odious task of management? Man, I'm torn here!

You must now give all of your employees large raises and bonuses within 3 days or you will be crushed by a giant meteor.
Yes, really! I know of two employers who did not give out the raises after reading this and both of their houses were crushed by meteors while they slept! I actually saw a third employer who did not give out the raises and he was crushed by a meteor in his rental car on the way back to the airport while on a business trip!
