Not true! In my organization, we used to wonder "Why are these items included in the agenda? ... What do they mean?"

@ina: They'll learn quickly enough. Not that they'll quickly become psychopaths themselves, but they'll have to work for other lawyers, and it won't be long before they realize that CYA doesn't just apply to clients, but to your bosses too.

(Personally, I've come to question the assumption that law students turn into lawyers, in the sense of becoming evil and psychopathic. I think that there is a significant minority of law students who are already evil, and those are the ones who stay in the profession and become successful. The others leave the profession, struggle in small practices, or work in the public sector or other public interest institutional positions (legal aid, unions, etc.).)

It takes a lot of guts to subject oneself to disembowelment.

A couple thoughts here: first, "Sticks and stones will break my bones, and words will get me fired" - also, is this the CEO's way of getting Dilbert to design the new "Hara-Kiri" model?

This should strip should be passed out in front of engineering schools ( and graphics arts etc, essentially anyone who actually puts something into a product that can be exploited by another person ) as a word of warning.

Start a Consultants Union or something, because Dilbert has been working in this nightmare of a company so long the thought of being disemboweled, he is rather indifferent about. Albeit most engineers are abstract thinkers enough to find at least some benefit to their own disembowelment probably not enough to be indifferent to the prospect.

I would hope so anyway...
