From the Dead Horse's Mouth

I drew this strip tonight while eating hamburgers and watching Big Brother. It's based on quotes overheard by my friend Amy (one of my favorite people in the world) at her place of work. She says to imagine these sayings spoken with a southern drawl and with full confidence that they are being used wisely and correctly. Thanks Amy! Hopefully there'll be more to come. (Hamburgers and Big Brother I mean).

One of the main things that I learned when I started working in corporate environments is that there's this whole secret code-language of sayings used by the executive that trickles down to management (often getting garbled on the way) that you need to pick up quickly or you won't understand what the fuck anyone is talking about.I had a boss that was a chronic "ducks in a row" guy. I realized quickly that it translates to:"I haven't got my shit together yet" but if you said that in a meeting you would be quickly called on it, but for some reason if you just said "I just need to get my ducks in a row" instead, everyone will just nod and say "Of course.." and there will be no repurcussions at all.
