Microsoft Office Man!!

Posted: August 8, 2004 at 4:57 pm in misc

A few days ago, I instant messaged my friend Wil to ask what he was up to. He responded “Working on a visio graph”. Recently, it seems like he’s always working on a visio graph, or a powerpoint presentation, or an excel spreadsheet, or a word document. He’s getting involved in project management, so it’s not surprising. But it’s still kind of funny. Hence, my response: “Go, go, Microsoft Office Man! Use your M.O.M.-power!” A couple seconds later, I remarked “That has the makings of a demented Dilbert-ripoff web-comic – The Adventures of Microsoft Office Man!” I can just picture it now. “M.O.M.! The board just called an emergency situation and need the newest numbers on the budget!” “Never fear, my trusty sidekick Project Manager! I shall use the automatic linking functions of Excel, and export to a Powerpoint presentation! Voila! Witness the power of Microsoft Office Man!” Okay, I can’t make it funny, but I bet somebody who was more bitter than I could.
