New Job Designations

What happens when some instructional designers (IDs) and editors get together over some coffee in the middle of a hard, hectic day (on crazy projects the middle of the day is 7.00 PM) of reviewing storyboards, correcting punctuation, and fixing bugs:

[Of course for obvious reasons, names have been eliminated in this conversation all together.]

ID-A: Accha listen, ID-B and I are distributing important designations and portfolios.

Chief ID: Chief Idler for me please. And with a job description to match.

ID-A: ID-B wants Senior Fullstop-Putter.

Chief ID: I heard about that.

ID-A: And ID-C has expressed interest in being Deputy Hyphenation Manager. By the way, I have a job offer going for Head—Apostrophier. Care for it?

Chief ID: No, for a change I want a simple title. How about Commander? A Commander can do what he wants.

ID-A: Sounds good. So, does this person add more commas or delete existing ones? By the way, am also looking for Colon—izer and Semi-Colon—izer, if you have any suggestions

Chief ID: Colon—izer is a good title for Editor-1 (said Editor-1 is from the USA), except that it sounds a bit incorrect, politically.

ID-A: And since Editor-2 is half-Indian, she would be apt for Semi-Colon—izer. wot say?

Chief ID: Yup.

Wot to do? We are like this only.
