Programatorul – EL ESTE DUMNEZEU

Mai iute ca glontul
Mai puternic ca o locomotiva
Poate sa treaca peste o cladire dintr-o singura saritura
Merge pe apa
Vorbeste cu Dumnezeu

Se poate tine dupa glont
Poate împinge trenuri mici
Poate sa sara peste cladiri cu vânt favorabil
Merge pe apa daca nu sunt valuri
Vorbeste cu Dumnezeu numai daca i s-a acordat audienta

Junior Vicepresident
Poarta mereu un MAC 10
Trage trenuri cu dintii
Poate sa sara peste cladiri mai mici, cu elan
Merge pe apa in bazine acoperite
Uneori Dumnezeu îi aporba o cerere de discutie

Division Manager
Poarta o pusca cu teava retezata prin mahalale
Are propriul sau tren
Se catara pe fatada cladirilor
Concureaza la Olimpiada la stilul fluture
Îl zareste din când în când pe Dumnezeu

Product Manager
Nu este dotat cu munitie de razboi
Se teme de trenuri
Se catara pe scara de incendiu
Înoata bine
Are pe birou o icoana cu chipul lui Dumnezeu

Business Unit Manager
Poarta pistol cu capse
Are macheta unui tren în pivnita
Foloseste usile cladirilor
Poate sa înoate câineste
Poarta mereu o cruce împotriva atacurilor vampirilor

Programming Manager
Are nevoie de ajutor ca sa-si umple pistolul cu apa
Fuge dupa trenuri (si masini)
Se întepeneste în usile rotitoare
Poarta vesta de salvare în apropierea apei
Îsi spune rugaciunea înainte de culcare

Prinde gloante în dinti
Arunca trenurile de pe sine
Ridica cladirile si trece pe sub ele
Muta albia râurilor din calea sa
EL ESTE Dumnezeu.
