Hey boys, have you all heard the news
`Bout Alter and her job at Hughes?
   She's got popcorn and fish,
   But it's everyone's wish
That she type up their salary reviews.


Limerick Poem: This one was for our secretary, Carol Alter. It makes a lot of sense if you were there and knew Carol. The title is a pun... having to do with her last name (obviously), and (less obvious) her tendency to "go native" on camping trips. I never got to experience the native part first hand, but Carol had lots of pictures to back up her camping tales.

The poem was written to commemorate her transferring to another department within Hughes Aircraft.
