IISD Admin Lunchroom Chatter #4

Nosher #1: Well, the “skin-study” report that we paid $100,000+ for discovered a new skin color.

Nosher #2: You’re kidding! What color is that?

Nosher #1: RED! Yes, there are some really RED faces around the Admin building now that someone has finally looked at the “study” and determined that it lacked “scientific rigor and objectivity.” Actually, that’s Admin speak for: “The ‘study’ results really stink.”

Nosher #2: Well, you can’t fault the two newest board members. Not only did they not approve this “study,” but they are the ones who are responsible for bringing this waste of money to the public’s attention.

Nosher #1: That’s true. It’s a shame that some of the other board members are still not admitting to their complicity. In fact, one board member believes that if you squeeze this lemon hard enough, that some “value” will be realized.

Nosher #2: What can you expect? The only “skin” these board members are concerned with is their political hide.

A note from counsel: These “candid” lunchroom conversations have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles. Mark Holbrook
