Tom Green said <snip> "...bizarre statement intended to see which
reviewers were paying attention."
This was referred to at American Airlines (when I was writing there) as
the "Fruitcake Recipe," an actual recipe that was included in the
documentation to see if the reviewers were doing their job.
This engendered the statement "Reviewer is not reading the doc:
Fruitcake Recipe!!" followed by hysterical laughter.
It lightened the mood, anyway :-)
