In the current job market, a peep at MediaPost's People on the Move newsletter seems like an empty exercise in managing expectations. It's hard to look without wincing lest you see a familiar name or two among the dearly departed, while the once-bountiful list of promotions and new hires could now fit on a single square of toilet paper. So, how refreshing it was to see a funny entry on yesterday's list of hires and fires:
"Emerge hired Bruce Lee as creative dragon."
A call to the New York agency in hopes of asking Lee what, specifically, his creative dragon's job duties include got us trapped in one of those infinite voice-prompt limbo loops. So, we hung up before learning this ancient Chinese secret.
