Thanks Rob – getting far too many emails from folks wanting to know how to find the name of your dog. It’s definitely more challenging than it was finding the names of your kids – that was easy (the person who asked me wasn’t hired by BillCo).
But your challenge got me thinking and I’d like to share some thoughts with those looking for bowser’s name…
Are you absolutely certain Rob isn’t throwing a curveball? Afterall, he doesn’t know Christmas from Bourke Street. I mean, he is a crazy Aussie (who believes that Seattle reminds him of Sydney, meat pies are superior to Filet Mignon, and well, he probably drinks too much beer so you know where his judgment lies) and being that recruiters need to be aware of cultural issues, are you certain that he’s using the word “dog” in the same sense that us Americans would?
Are you certain he didn’t change his name from Macintosh to McIntosh when he crossed the border to the states because he found that the former was trademarked by Apple (as well as the Apple Growers of America)?
He’s playing you people, he’s playing you… wait until the ad agency in California takes down the mathematically inclined Google billboard and replaces it with the mug of our favorite crazy Aussie. “Don’t be a dog, find my dog” it’ll say…on the very same day he’ll wind up on Geraldo, Oprah, and the newsletter for the RNC as demonstration that our economy is growing.
That Rob is a sly one – remember, use your time wisely.
