Calvin Today, Hobbes Tomorrow
“You know the way you can be studying a flow chart,” Spence says, “and then all of a sudden you get this irresistible desire to find out all about the history of flow charts?”
“Yeah, I know that one,” says Admin. “That’s how work doesn’t get done. It’s the opposite of what made this country great.”
“The Calvinist side of you! How refreshing.”
“All right, all right. What did you find out?”
“Flow charts,” says Spence, “or something called flow process charts, were first introduced by Frank Gilbreth in 1921. He was one of the time motion guys, probably also responsible for all the repetitive stress injuries that came after.”
“My elbow?” says Admin.
“Your elbow,” says Spence, “is due to your insistence on still using that stupid kick serve. It doesn’t fool anybody anyway. Gilbreth was also the father in the original real life Cheaper By The Dozen family.”
“You mean the flow chart guy ended up being played by Steve Martin?”
“Kind of fits, in my opinion.”
