A Time to Change

Today the nuclear power plant that provides electricity to my company sprang a leak, and poisonous gas and lava was released into the air. The president of the power plant has had a 100% safety record in the last 7 years, but in some ways he didn't have great controls in place and things got a little out of hand.

Knowing this was a time for change, I used my position to get the president ousted. But who should replace him? Who would be the most positive person-the one we could put all our hope in? Obviously,the right man for the job was Bill O'Rama, a motivational speaker I saw at the county fair a few years back.

Bill has what it takes to put this power plant back on track. With his extensive years of experience traveling around Utah county and telling people about the power of positive thinking, he should have things fixed in no time. Of course he does associate with people from the 'destroy nuclear power' union. And he wants high school students to be forced to work at the power plant for 3 months. And he has vowed to bankrupt the plant by giving all our income to people who ride bicycles that have those little motors on them that light up a headlamp. Sure, he doesn't technically have any relevant 'experience' in running a complicated nuclear power plant. But it's not like you have to be a rocket scientist. His rhetoric is so positive, there's really no way we can lose.

Why use efficient power when you can get the same effect using arugula?

Indeed. You did the right thing my friend...er, cousin-in-law. It's important that we continue to always support the motivational speakers above the experienced.

Why'd you have to drag Utah county into this? Here we are minding our own business and BAM!
