Corporate Executives at GM Grow Testicles

So I get pissed off a lot. Not as much as Xrys or Mr. Seffinga, but I'm still no slouch when it comes to pure anger. Lately, however, something strange is happening. Occasionally, I'll read news that does the OPPOSITE of piss me off. I don't know what that would be called, as I'm fairly sure it's not Pissed On (see also: Robin Hood, Men in Tights). For the time being I think I'll call it "Fucking Impressed."

So this strange phenomenon of being "Fucking Impressed" has lead to a new hobby, that being writing letters to the people who fucking impressed me and letting them know that because of them, I was fucking impressed. The latest person to fucking impress me was Rick Wagoner of GM.

The chief executive of General Motors (GM) is to take a 50% pay cut to help the struggling carmaker save money.

Rick Wagoner and other executives have agreed to reduce their pay and forgo bonuses as part of radical measures aimed at improving GM's finances.

To this, I sent this letter.

To whom it may concern,

I just wanted to express how pleased I was that Rick Wagoner and other GM executives have taken the financial responsibility to cut their own wages instead of other measures to reduce GM's spending. I think this is a bold move that more American executives need the courage to make.

I hope this is the start of a new trend.
