Ludicrous Musings We humbly offer a smattering of articles from the serious and satirical pen of the 1ceman. If you wear white shirts and skinny ties, conduct internal audits and take your job seriously, please bear in mind that satire may be injurious to your pompous personality. It may be too late for you to get a life, so you will have to content yourself with bitter retrospection on your abject, purposeless existence.
