Boss: "I'd like you to meet Bradley, our new manager of executive compensation."
Boss: "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."
Boss: "Good work, Bradley. I'll recommend to the board that you get a huge raise!"
Dilbert: "Gaaa!! Stop pretending to have reasons!! Just steal the stupid money!!!"
Boss: "See what I have to deal with every day?"
Bradley: "Would an extra month of vacation reduce the sting?"
