Today's post on Joel on Software is great, but I love this line:

In my BillG review meeting, the whole reporting hierarchy was there, along with their cousins, sisters, and aunts, and a person who came along from my team whose whole job during the meeting was to keep an accurate count of how many times Bill said the F word. The lower the f*-count, the better.

As someone who was once accused of "using the F word like a comma" it's good to know that it won't hurt my career prospects.
