So the timing is a bit late because it happened at our office holiday party, but the team was awarded trophies for our 2011 performances. The trophies were all karate-themed, because Tom’s a black belt in karate (best pronounce that ka-duh-tay if you know what’s good for you). Also because nobody wants karate trophies, so you can get extremely low bulk rates on them.

Ka-duh-tay!Apparently, Tom was trying to build on our burgeoning self-confidence, but that could always backfire. As usual, the Onion got there first and best. And for an animated take on our intra-office banter, this. Not so much the merits of various styles of unarmed combat, but the repeated blows to the groin. After all, no groin, no krav maga.
