I've changed my company name on LinkedIn

So we had a meeting today to discuss a particularly poorly coded area of software. At some point I heard the word "insanity" so much that I started seeing it all as being some sort of demon summoning in the Cthulu vein. Suddenly, I imagined myself working at the HP Lovecraft school of software development, and then the conversation started to make sense. At one point a developer kept saying some nonsense syllables and I became convinced he was trying to say one of the names of the Old Ones that's not pronounceable with a human tongue. Phrases like, "We need to have control over this stuff!" and "Things that were previously coping started dying" all started to have sinister secondary meanings.

Eventually, the guy leading this effort said, "When are we just going to have a zero tolerance for this kind of shit?"

I said, "I'd be happy if we just had a zero tolerance for, say, fox shit. Then we could work our way down through the carnivores and maybe only have herbivore piles of shit."

A second developer said, "Ah! If we were even able to say no to fox shit! That would be a happy day."

It's not fair of you to make me laugh this hard from the other side of the Atlantic. My co-workers think I'm insane... and they're wondering why I'm laughing.

Yay! And I did really change my company name on Linked in. And my job title. I'm a Principal Sorceress now.
