The best part of the holidays is that instead of having to go outside to get our daily chocolate fix, vendors send the chocolates to us! Many thanks to IBM for mailing out leftover Smarties from the recent celebration of its 90th birthday in Canada. Or were they Smarties? The small goodies came in only blue and white and had either “IBM” or “90” stamped on them (We should show a picture of them but they are, alas, no more). Placed on the bag itself was a note in big letters: “WARNING: MAY HAVE COME IN CONTACT WITH NUTS.” Now, some of the big thinkers at Big Blue are a little on the wacky side, but we’d stop short of actually calling them nuts. After all, they buy a lot of ad space.
