So I had an advertising rep from a magazine visit me at work today, and try to sell me on their bitchin' advertising plan for Purgatory Inc.

Proudly, he brandished his laptop, and started his PowerPoint presentation "Advertising Themes and Strategies in the 80s, 90s and 00s".

With a sparkle in his eye he said "I even have some music on this presentation," as some eerily familiar notes rang from his tinny laptop speaker. It was Piano Man.

"I tried to think" he grinned. "Who's been at the top of music in every decade since the 80s? Billy Joel!"

Billy freakin' Joel.

If there's one thing that can make a tedious bullet-point PowerPoint presentation even more enjoyable for me, it's got to be the dulcet tones of Billy Joel.

God help me.
