Dear intern, when I was 25, I created a PDF in which I assigned each employee to the Muppet they reminded me of the most. I wanted to send it to my work friend, but I accidentally sent it to the entire company. My boss (Beaker) wanted to fire me, but the owners (Bert & Ernie) intervened. https://t.co/zMKvQ6nxjj
