The "Stay In Your Silo" Theory Results in a Snoring White Elephant
Early reviews on the White Elephant drawing are not enthusiastic.
Interesting that Cat has required that hosts stay hosts, producers stay producers, no participation by weekend JV.
Any organization will inevitably segment itself into castes -- remember high school "cliques"? -- who tend to stick together, excluding those in lesser castes and yearning to be accepted into the greater castes.
The "silo theory" eliminates the possibility that the resulting tension will add any interest to White Elephant day. It might end up being fun, always enjoyable to hear guys who don't hang together too much do a show.
But it will be pretty . . . white.
