The Boss: "Wally, I'm promoting you to Director of the Engineering Quality Group!"
"Wait a minute. I thought you were going to eliminate that group."
The Boss: "Your assignment is to fire them all."
Wally: "Aaagh! That will be hideous!"
"And when I'm done you won't need a director. Then you'll fire me!"
The Boss: "You have my word that I will not fire you."
Dilbert: "Hi, guys."
The Boss: "That would be a job for Executive Director Dilbert."
