"I am highly experienced at making funny comics about managers,” he wrote at the time on his popular blog, “How hard could it be to transition from mocking idiots to being one?”
If he keeps is sense of humor he should make it. That is, if he has decent managers.

About 10 years back while at Target I interviewed at Best Buy - the chief of the section had a stuffed doll of the pointy-haired boss on his desk...I was sitting there staring at it....wondering...I asked who gave it to him...he mentioned his staff had given it to him as a gag gift and he thought it was funny and cool...after about 30 minutes of back and forth I realized it wasn't a gag..I said a silent thank you to the staff, one of whom looked like Wally, for the heads up and said I didn't think it would be a good fit...
