Do I Still Have a Job?

This is Bill Macgowan. Bill is Sun's Chief Human Resources Officer. Which means he works with me to build and cultivate talent at Sun. He's bright, well spoken, and usually exercises good judgement. Usually. But today, he perpetrated a prank. On me. An April Fool's Day prank. Executed early enough to turn into a video for the enjoyment of Sun's employees on Tuesday (April Fool's Day). And if I have the courage to publicly display my gullibility, it'll be here, on this blog, in front of a global audience. The prank, like any good Silicon Valley practical joke, involved a venture capitalist, a drooling visitor, a bib and lamb chops. Owing to the graciousness with which my parents raised me, I suffered through the prank. Without staring. Focused on the business at hand. Having no idea it was a prank. Until all the camera men appeared. At which point I picked up on the notion something wasn't quite right. I had been spoofed. Upon my humbling return from lunch, Bill caught me in the hallway. He asked, with his ill-gotten video in hand, "so do I still have a job?" And I have until Tuesday to think up a creative response. Remember, my office mate is the CFO, and the General Counsel writes a blog. Surely there's an opportunity for clever repartee. Surely :)
