show samoyed (detroit dog show 2)

a samoyed prepares to enter the show ring at the detroit 2005 kennel club show in march, 2005.

i'm loving the discussions kicked up about a do it yourself B-school education. i want to ensure i have a good, secure career ahead of me, and i know that having versitile skills will assist with that. if i can handle business side stuff i'll be ok, even if i'm not actually doing MBA type things. to that end, i've been loving the mission statement Phrase-O-Matic, which i have decided to rewrite in python. i hope you enjoy it too, and can not only share at your next meeting but can use it to spot empty "business speak" from miles away.
#!/usr/bin/env python

# a mission statement Phrase-O-Matic generator, in python # based on http://headrush.typepad.com/creating_passionate_users/2005/03/do_your_users_k.html
