    You know they give workers American names over there.

    Actual conversation I had

    "Hello, Gateway computers, Sandy speaking, how may I help you?"
    "May I ask where I just called?"
    "Pakistan."

    When there's a team shakeup, are you allowed to use the phrase "Heads will roll"?

    Look on the bright side. You'll get to write about a bunch of holes-in-one every day in Baghdad.
