Forwarded on a local Slack from a former co-worker, whose wife found it on Facebook. I’m looking for the author and will update if I find him/her.
I adore a great rant and this one is right up there. Here’s the setup: WPAC, the Watch Purchasing Abstinence Club, is a group of watch addicts trying to help each other wasting money. One of the recurring conversations is that a member posts a prospective watch and the others ritually insult it. This is my favorite so far.
For context, a cyclops is a piece of watch crystal shaped to magnify the date. Rolex pioneered and still uses them, but many dislike a cyclops due to the distorting effects and occlusion of the dial.
Sometimes the bashing is good, and sometimes it’s this good.
Had to share. Thread is here… enjoy.
- Specific technologies over working solutions
- Hiring buzzwords over proven track records
- Creative job titles over technical experience
- Reacting to trends over more pragmatic options
Every now and then this strip makes my day.

My sister found this one – thanks, Susan! Follow the link for the explanation.
