Accountant: "I have no idea what we're doing for our basket this year."
Me: "Eh, neither do we. It's IT, so we'll probably have some kind of technology, but..."
Accountant: "Yeah, but I'm supposed to be putting it together."
Me: "Oh. Okay, I can see where that'd be a problem."
Me: "Okay, so picture this: big basket, bottle of Jameson on one side, Bushmills on the other, six-pack of Killian's in the middle. And there, in the back center, a copy of How The Irish Saved Civilization. There's your basket idea."
Accountant: "You had me at 'Jameson'."
