  1. My boss and I spent the day ignoring each other. Definitely no motivational quotes there. It's weird "the Old Man" never got a real name.

  2. Is it just because she's a woman that I choose #2 as a favorite? :) Probably!
    My least favorite is #12 Corporations are destroying the world and that's not a comic, that's the truth!
