You know they are remaking _The Stepford Wives_, right[0]?  Seems 
appropriate given the demanding yuppie 2.5 SUV driving big haired 
"women" I see driving around all the time.  Of course, the irony 
is that what's missing from that movie is the equally 
cookie-cutter tan chino/light blue oxford+tie 'corporate man' aka 
CYA/don't let any better ideas from anyone else out-shine you 
robo-idiot "men".

I'd make a reference here to "The Apprentice", but I can decide 
whether to be funny or serious.  I have to admit, I think it'd be 
amusing to have on my resume, "Fired by Donald Trump". :-)
