"Every time I fire a linguist, the performance of our speech recognition system goes up."

Higgledy piggledy:
Frederick Jelinek,

director of note's

reputation for cranky

the audience for this is probably very very small.

ETA: (15 Sep 2010): Frederick Jelinek has passed away; his curmudgeonry will be missed in our community.
