Today, the hotly talented and exquisitely dressed editorial cartoonist and Calbuzzer Tom Meyer brings his singular vision to bear on the history-making primary election that saw California Republicans nominating two women for statewide office a mere 18 years after Democrats first managed the trick.
Then, as now, the operative metaphor for the political BFF movie is “Thelma and Louise,” with just a few tiny differences between the eMeg-iCarly partnership and the 1992 dynamic duo of DiFi and Babs.
Meyer’s take kicks off a week in which we’ll be running several, high-end guest commentaries, while Dr. P.J. Hackenflack facilitates the annual Calbuzz Corporate Retreat at the Super 8 Hotel in Buttonwillow, where every room comes equipped with an AM/FM clock radio and 25-cent magic fingers beds.
With 1,250 Calbuzz staffers jetting in from around the world on the company fleet, it should be a fun week, as Dr. H leads a series of general and break-out sessions designed to build our global brand and nurture our collaborative culture, using trust-building rope courses and fall-back exercises to knock down silos and grow cross-platform communications while empowering our associates to sharpen their saws and enlarge their skill set tool kits.
Don’t forget your markers and your flip chart – and don’t dare miss the Wednesday night Bon Fire and Talent Show – plenty of corporate hilarity and amusing gag prizes!
P.S. That sign at the scene of the accident says “Fiscal Responsibility Starts Here.” And the final close-up is of the red-eyed character (who also appears in panels one and two) who escapes by clinging to an umbrella.
