You have an unbelievable capacity for inanity.

PHB is Pointy Haired Boss. Everyone who has ever read Dilbert knows this
- and even if you didn't know about it you could *still* infer this as
obvious from the context of Leon's remark. Referring to managers who may
not quite get the point as PHBs has been a standing joke across the
entire business world for ages.

What's worse is I suspect you knew that full well. Your remark just
makes you look silly and inconsequential - which is a shame, because you
do, on occasion, make a serious, insightful, and valuable contribution.
