From the department of (unintentional?) irony  
Radio commercial one (paraphrased from memory): Is sitting at a desk work? No! Or pushing buttons? No! Real work isn't shuffling papers or telling people what to do. Real work uses your hands and your body and your brain, like construction or logging or mining. And for real work you need real shoes. Red Wing shoes.

Radio commercial two, immediately following (from memory): o/~ Technology is the future, get in it, Fountainhead College of Technology! o/~ If you have a strong work ethic and a job that isn't challenging, enroll today in Fountainhead College of Technology.

Yet more proof that timing is everything!

That -is- funny ...

I wanted to find out about these Red Wing shoes, so I did a search. One of the first hits was a web page for the guy who is the IT Manager at Red Wing Shoes up in Minnesota.

I wonder what -he- thinks of that commercial? He sits at a desk, pushes buttons, tells other people what to do ... and his bosses pay for that commercial.
