Another sock puppet video by Lauren Fincham!

Not long ago, in a corporate puppet park not far away, a large company began an ill-conceived software project.

Inefficient, incompatible, and complicated it was -- unwanted by those who would use it.

Despite empty words of work/life balance, diversity seminars, and "we're a team" -- the company demanded unrealistic deadlines, project scope creep, and even more productivity from its overworked puppet population.

The dedicated people-of-fabric sacrificed family and life for long hours, nights, and weekends --

-- and their reward?

Not a bonus.
Nor additional time off.
No banquet.
Or even new eye buttons.

Instead, a gift at their desks one morning:

A blue rubber ball and a certificate of gratitude: "Please enjoy this stress ball."

It's good to be appreciated.

Within six months, they were laid off anyway.
