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.
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.
