This post is for Alec: Today, NPR ran this story about "industrial musicals," a body of musicals that were made specifically for big companies for annual conventions and meetings. The musicals were apparently huge productions employing talented professionals, but they were usually about the company or the products the company manufactured. It's worth a listen; some of these songs are really good, and appropriately hilarious. Some song snippets include a catchy tune about the uses of Silicon and another number about "My Insurance Man."

I can't believe there hasn't been a Simpsons episode about this.
