    Hahaha! I laugh out loud just thinking about this video. I use it in my change management class to illustrate to students that change is a perpetual and constant process, that it can be fun to examine in a humorous light, and that it serves an educational purpose to study the topic. Let me know what y’all think!

    Dang it! Sorry for so many posts today. I just realized that I did not read the directions correctly and my first post did not address the comment requirements. My favorite past Fried Friday post was “Happy Thanksgiving Everyone” on 11/26. Why? Because I LOVE LOVE LOVE Jimmy Fallon. He is hysterical. I also love clever Top 10 lists. Ode to David Letterman, maybe? In any event, this was a pithy post that hit the mark.

    P.S. This is my all-time favorite Jimmy Fallon clip ever which involves lip syncying with Emma Stone… it has 37M views and some small percent of those is from me:
