M&M's "for business" hard to swallow.

Lilly Insulin? That's a bit ironic isn't it? OK, sending a poison pill M&M to an overly aggressive investment banker is kinda funny. But fired by M&M? I guess it's better than an email. (scanned from the latest Business Week.)
previously in stupid business:
1. So, reading Business Week will give me Encephalitis?
2. Topographical Zombie Bono...
3. Murdering Cereal With Marketing.
4. I wrote a post for you, and it was called "Yellow"
5. fMRI Imaging vs. Cookie Puss.

Did you photoshop this? It's sadistic and sociopathic... suggesting, say, firing somebody and ruining his/her life by means of a cute oversized M&M candy.

Don't clean out your desk. Simply swallow the evidence and keep showing up. If your boss is confrontation averse who knows? maybe you can tough it out.

The UPS one should be yellow on brown and "micro manager" isn't very fresh, but really - who wouldn't want to work for a company whose HR director had a bowl of the white ones on her desk?

I like the Lilly one. I always thought you should get a free candy bar with an insulin prescription.

A Comic Sans poison pill is the very definition of adding insult to injury!
