10AM Project Meet­ing

Work­er #1: Boy, you look tired…
Project Man­ag­er: Yeah, it’s been hec­tic. I need some of that ge­ico bal­boa stuff.
Work­er #1: Uh, ginko bil­boa?
Project Man­ag­er: That’s what I said.
Work­er #1: No, you said “ge­ico bal­boa”.
Project Man­ag­er: What’s the dif­fer­ence?
Work­er #1: Well, Ge­ico is an in­sur­ance com­pa­ny, and Bal­boa is Rocky the boxer’s–as in the movie–last name.
Project Man­ag­er: Ha! I won­der if he gets a hard time for that.
Work­er #1: He’s not a re­al per­son. Be­sides, I think what you meant was you need­ed some gin­seng. Do you know what ginko bil­boa is for?
Work­er #2: Okay, se­ri­ous­ly, how long is this meet­ing go­ing to be?
