Putting It Into Perspective

Webcomic Storyline: 

Kernel Panic, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

NARRATOR: The "War Room." Alan briefs his troops.

ALAN: I know we've faced consultants before, but this time it feels different. They aren't just "assessing" our division -- they're "evaluating our best practices" so we can "maintain parity with our industry's standards."

(No one responds.)

ALAN: They want to replace Emacs and VI with "Notepad."
