    How a dead CEO will be able to help Blackberry is unclear to me.
    Oh that one just begs for a humorous joke but I will refrain.

    The comment was a common one, not meant to imply a corpse be exhumed to be placed in a ceo's chair and stink with decay and fill the room with flies. What the poster was saying was that somebody with the ingenuity, ambition and grit that Steve Jobs had needs to begin steering the ship.... and the first order of business is to kick off the dead weight slowing the ship down and reel in blackberry's anchor. Marking the nautical maps of the barrier reefs will be nice, too, and stop running into them over and over and wonder why the ship gets nowhere.

    The interpunction of that statement could be interesting.
    Do you mean the vanilla interpretation:

    which would mean that I knew I was being sarcastic? Which probably is true. Most of the time I know when I'm being sarcastic...
    or do you mean the following.

    Which could mean that I did know what was meant by invoking mr. Jobs, but which leaves open the possibility of me not knowing I was being sarcastic...

    Sorry, couldn't resist...
    So good at grammar yet struggled with difference between "a Steve Jobs" and The Steve Jobs.

    Sorry, neither could I... :hysterical

    I already removed my post as being too much. No need to dreg it up...
    But you're right I fail to see the way mr. Steve Jobs became "the Steve Jobs" and beyond that the basis for any possible "a Steve Jobs".


    For completion's sake (as you left out the quotes), my deleted post once again:

    Oh, I stand by it. That's why I got the original ("so much better with the quotes included") back from the browser graveyard and edited it back into my previous post. I just didn't think it was all that funny after rereading it twice...

    "He" is the opposite of "SHE." Not that big of a word. And since there are two of them in that sentence it gets even simpler.

    Now you try it.

    no disrespect taken, this thread was honestly made for fun. I have a tendancy to be sarcastic but act like its intemded to be completely serious and I guess I'm quite good at it as everyone thinks I'm serious.

    this attitude also tends to get me in trouble with my fiance...I guess I should consider working on that.....because well I don't really consider myself a glutton for punishment
