This Is What They Talk About At Big Firms?

So my wife, Mrs. Angrybell, works at a rather large firm in the city. Today, she forwarded me the following exchange between her and her cohorts on one of the teams that she works on that defends, what she terms, a Great Corporation Accused of Great Wrongs.

Where's he going? He only shares his intimate secrets with you, Mrs.Angrybell, because you are special.... :-) [of course, maybe you just heard this tidbit from FailedStandupGirl [ed. note, she's the secretary for Mrs.Angrybell]

As I have told you I am the last Airbender - special, unique, telepathic with powers to save humanity. :) I have divined that he's headed to Boston for a science primer with SuperNerdGeekLawyer.

Why does Han Solo need to travel to see Yoda when he has Obi-Wan in the adjoining office?

Re: This Just In

Dude, Han Solo is some rogue pilot. He is not a jedi. Somewhere in the universe a science fiction fan just died.


And its more than likely that someone billed around $300 per hour to one of the Great Corporations Accused of Great Wrongs for this. Sigh.

I'd bill more than that for the Airbender reference alone.
