Friday Humor Part 2 - TBTRIMJOB

Tyler Durden's picture


In a day when many could do with some cheering up, here is some bonus humor courtesy of some truly delightful headline editing at Reuters.

Which begs the question: Is there such a thing as a RIM Job which is just too big, and, on a serious note, will Canada step in and bail out the troubled electronics company?

RIM is also an acronym for Records and Information Management. We've got a lady in her late 50's here at work who writes articles for our employee newsletter on managing records.

Not one, but two articles so far have used this phrase. I keep debating on whether or not to tell her, or just keep enjoying the articles.

Oh, and expertsexchange is about the worst damn help site on the web. I've got it black-listed in my google search results, as it's always at the top.

I suppose it might be an urban legend, but there is a story that when British electricity company Powergen set up an Italian subsidiary, it named that subsidiary Powergen Italia. The website was www.powergenitalia

If it isn't true, it ought to be.

Just remember this rule when it comes to RIM JOBS:

If you've been married longer than 4 or 5 years, ask your girlfriend, not your wife.  Odds of getting a job go up dramatically with that method.....

If you're not married and just dating, well, most of the time you don't even have to'll get a job regardless; but remember it's in anticipation of getting married someday.........

JUst like NORTEL right?

Problem with Canadian companies is success goes to their head, and they forget there are too many smart people with a lot of dough and resources out there; APPLE comes to mind and CISCO and JUNIPER and all the others that sealed Nortel's death knell...

RIM's the same, for a long time they said, the corporate market wil keep us going, and while they do offer value for some secure minded corporations and governments, they will become a niche player and be absorbed by someone else just like Tandem Computers and many other successful niche players who hoped to one day conquer the word as they were full of it!!!!!  success got to their heads and they got swalllowed up whole not unlike some other lttle fish in the ocean!!

See something say something.

Sheriff Stan Barry of Fairfax County Virgina would become the most famous Sheriff in America overnight if he would take his forces to the Westfields Marriott and investigate criminal activity there.

Call Fairfax County Virgina Sheriff's office and report criminal activity at the Builderberg meeting.

Multiple violations of federal law are taking place there, specifically of the Logan Act.

Sedition and treason are being perpetrated by elected government officials, one namely Senator John Kerry at attendance plotting criminal activity against the USA.

Call Sheriff Stan Barry, demand he do his duty and arrest those Federal government officials for violating US Law!

This is also criminal activity perpetrated by the Builderberg people.

Nanny Bloomberg today:

"New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg offered a full-throated defense of his proposed ban on large-size sugary sodas on Friday, calling criticism of the proposal "ridiculous" and saying his city is again leading the way in taking on critical health issues."

Yes, he said that with a straight face. Because, you see, he's Very Serious about health in NYC. No Big Gulp for you fatty!

This from the same insane prick who's helped let the Heroes of 9/11 die sick & penniless due to air they breathed trying to clean up after Larry Silverstein's latest foray into Insurance Fraud.

You're forgetting that RIM is a government contractor.  While that could change, I'd bet they're going to be around for a while yet.  Government is slow to change.  

That does not mean you should invest in them, of course.  While I like my Blackberry well enough, they've lost a lot of their market share already, and that doesn't look like it's about to get better in the near future.  I could easily see them as a gov't-owned GM-type entity or a small remnant focused on encypted communication for politicos, though.  Lots of companies drag on for years after they should have died because they got their hooks into the pork barrel.

Jewish girls won't do it prior to getting married but if anyone has experience that differs let me know.

But to the point, wasn't there an XRAY picture floating aroung the web a few years ago where someone indeed had placed a blackberry up their ass? Maybe that is the true Rim job? Maybe all along RIM was like some PETA star trying to save the lives of gerbils once fuzzy weasel at a time?
