"In the office in which I work, there are five people of whom I am afraid. Each of these five people is afraid of four people (excluding overlaps), for a total of 20, and each of these twenty people is afraid of six people, making a total of one hundred and twenty people who are feared by at least one person ... "

"... We wise grown ups here at the company go gliding in and out all day long, scaring each other at our desks and cubicles and water coolers and trying to evade the people who frighten us. We come to work, have lunch, and go home. We goose-step in and goose-step out, change our partners and wander all about, sashay around for a pat on the head, and promenade home till we all drop dead."

From Joseph Heller, “Something Happened”, 1974

Take a really wild guess as to what type of a mood I’m in right now ... Go on, dare ya.

From 1988, The Godfathers "Birth School Work Death"
