And may I remind you who *my* boss is ???? Don't hate us, Don -- we're all just doing our jobs here. Harrumph indeed!
Chest thumping aside, let's call this pro tempore session of the ODSS Disciplinary Committee to order ... If I may have the floor ...
Mr. Sergeant at Arms, in my appointed office of ODSS Attorney General, it has come to my attention that we have a potentially serious issue before us. To ameliorate and diffuse what could be a very explosive and divisive matter, may I ask that you present President Cosmo with a request to issue a Presidential Order compelling Carl to produce IMMEDIATELY photographic evidence of the truck under consideration by him for purchase/use as grounds for his membership application to the tres exclusive (use of the French language here not only connotes sophistication but also underscores the gravitas .... ooooh! Latin!!! ... of the matter before us) 1-Ton Club? If this request is acceptable, then I so ask.
Furthermore, if Carl does NOT immediately produce the aforementioned imagery, may I humbly petition the court to issue him a *very* stern and stinging verbal admonishment by you (as the foremost officer of the court) and that his ODSS 1-Ton Club Membership Application be immediately sent to the bottom of the stack/possibly "lost"?
I also call for the floor to be closed to further discussion (except by you or Mr. Marlow) as there can be no excuse, no justification for this egregious and outrageous flouting of our time-honored protocols. Harrumph.
Humbly and Respectfully Submitted by your Obedient Servant,
J. Crosby Milliman ODSS Attorney General (Also: First Lord of the Treasury, Commander-in-Chief, Lord High Admiral, Master of the Buckhounds, Groom of the Back Stairs, Lord High Pooh Bah of Stovebolt (both acting and elect) ... all rolled into one and at a salary. I a salaried minion! It revolts me, but I do it!)
Harrumph, etc, etc

What if he just cut and pasted a representative picture from Pintrist to get you boys off his back? I would have thought he would have mentioned a few of the unique details of the truck prior to throwing any-old picture at you. It's yellow, that's a detail that could have provided some verification. Who does that?
