I’d’ve wagered a week’s ration of grog that Cap’n Wheaton’s salute to International Talk Like a Pirate Day
had caused the day’s biggest broadside of giggles, but then I stumbled across this article
about joining the jolly crew of the United Nations. ’Twas clearly written by an old salt:
Be aware that working for the United Nations may not necessarily be the challenging, glamorous, “save the world” job you’re looking for … While the pay and benefits are great, many employees are quickly disenchanted by the stifling bureaucracy, lack of creativity, inability to utilize initiative, and nepotistic favoritism.
Alas, I shall need every guffaw I can muster, for I am serving an extra watch this evening.
