one of my favourite moments this year is when a marketing guy was explaining “in really simple terms” how one of their systems operated. Just about everything he said about it was wrong and he made sure to take complete credit for the creation of the tool. After he was done his presentation he asked if there were any questions, and I raised my hand:

Does Paul know you’re taking credit for his work?

Paul was the project lead. He planned the system. I coded and deployed it.

The marketing guy seemed offended for a second until one of his colleagues leaned over and whispered the above to him.

Have you ever seen a marketing guy turn beet red because he was the last one in the room who was in on the joke? 🙄
