  • What rhymes with gluttany? Glittany. It would have been more interesting if the name was Glitany.

We all have enough of a geeky reputation as it is and working as I do in a large financial organisation, we're slowly getting to the point that business people see us as peers. However, anything like this just makes us look like overgrown children and sets everything back a decade. Sorry to be a bit bah-humbug but really...
