Hat tip (pun intended): ‘Harvard Business Review’

I never thought I would get to file a blog post under both, the Business Journalism and the Mariachi music tags but here it goes:

I have no idea why, but the editors of the presumably prestigious Harvard Business Review decided to use a photo of a (also presumably) mariachi trio to illustrate a tweet about a very important story on… ahem, ahem… conference calls. Yes, conference calls.

Of course I know there might be a great, philosophical — and, why not, intelligent — reason behind all this and I’m just too tired and crazy from all this cold medication, but seriously WTF?

Here’s the original tweet, which at press time had been retweeted and favorited a few dozen times. Oh, and just in case, I’ve taken a screenshot in case it disappears mysteriously into the night:
