Not the Comfy Pillow!

5:50 PM -- Holiday season brings strange gifts to the AT&T Building in NYC. We usually get a couple of gift baskets from random vendors. A quick sampling of the food therein this time includes sliced Salmon (thankfully vacuum-packed) and "Australian licorice" along with the chocolate and cookies. Yummy!

But the weirdest of all is the comfy velour pillow sent to many of the editors by Redback Networks Inc. -- "An Ericssson company (TM)." A gentle suggestion that we're all a bunch of fat arses? Cheaper than customized Preparation H? A subtle allusion to the legendary Monty Python sketch:

Beats me. Nice shade of brown velour though.
