Strange search-engine queries (567)

Once a week, we dip into the search strings people used to find this site, and we hope we find a dozen or so worth mentioning. (Usually it’s not a problem.)

please calp:  The last thing we need around here is a dose of calp.

brenda johnson has used a preprinted form that she got from the internet to create her will. however, she was unhappy with one section of the will and crossed out the parts she didn’t like and hand wrote the changes she wanted. the changes that she made most likely made her will:  Slightly less readable.

since most ethics violations are small and rather insignificant in nature, employees need to understand that addressing these issues is secondary to making profits. ceos may be justified in putting these on the back-burner, waiting for more convenient moments to address them:  Which is how you know they’re mediocre CEOs.
