It seems tuesday's strip has been a bit overlooked and I just wanted to tell the guys that I did find it very funny, especially Chuck's face :D
And hasn't similar events happend in real life as well?

Yeah, it seems this is one of the things you learn at business school to use phrases and words that make everything you do sound clever and important. I had this idea in Japan though, because there are really people like that on the street. Usually with ads for casinos or nightclubs though. I wonder if this marketing strategy pays off in real life!

I think this strategy works about as well as passing out business cards.  You get about a 1% return.

Lol yeah all those new words that try to disguise the true meaning of something. The expression: Don't sell the skin until the bear is shot, gets a new lease of life as: Don't cheer before you see what that title really means.

Cleanliness Inspection could be a new word for debugging :D
