A Day in the Life of the Pointy-Haired Boss

The pointy-haired boss wakes up
Has wine for breakfast
Goes to work
Ruins a software engineer's life
Fires his secretary
Has wine for lunch
Raids the accounting department
Holds a useless meeting
Illuminates (sic) a small business
Hires an idiot
Goes back home
Has wine for dinner
Gets drunk
Watches TV
Has nightmares
Wakes up
Sleeps again.

By my eight year old son. Below are the teacher's comments. Bless him.

"An unusual choice of subject. I'm not sure that it is entirely appropriate but you have followed the poem structure well and definitely used your imagination. You have used the correct form of the verbs to start each sentence but could have used a few more adjectives, e.g. 'Has terrible nightmares'".

He (my son, not the teacher) also introduce me to this pretty cool thing called the Klein Bottle. See how it is also a mobius strip when dissected:

Your son sounds like an interesting (in a good way) young guy.
