That’s the Best You’ve Got?

I saw a cartoon recently with a genie in a bottle and thought it would be funny to put that genie in the middle of a business meeting to see what might happen.

While all sorts of scenarios like reshuffling personnel, increasing sales and smiting competitors played out, ultimately something boring and buzz-wordy like synergy was the funniest.

I mean, really? Three wishes and that’s the best you’ve got?
