I'm sorry, but the obvious stupid question is "What does a Hollywood
personal trainer read like??" Or, what is one??

* One manager wanted me to try the various style checkers. So I bought
* several and ran our texts through them. They all kept saying "Error!
* Error! Avoid Passive voice!" The manager thought that this was indeed an
* error, and wanted the entire manual only in the active voice.

* The damned manual now reads like something by a Hollywood personal trainer!
