"I'd like you to meet Bradley, our new manager of executive compensation."
"Bradley's job is to recommend to our board how much to pay company executives such as me."
"Bradley is totally objective."
"That was a world-class observation, so I'll recommend that the company buy you a pony."
"...A STRONG pony to carry the huge bags of cash I recommend for you."
"Good work, Bradley. I'll recommend to the board that you get a huge raise!"
"Gaaa!! Stop pretending to have reasons!! Just steal the stupid money!!!"
"See what I have to deal with every day?"
"Would an extra month of vacation reduce the sting?"
