Introducing the newest member of the team

We would like to welcome Phinn Samuel Heavner-Phillips to the team.  Phinn (PhD, Harvard 2036) will head up our Underage Product Testing Department and gather research on infantile rantings, which we get a lot of in this business.

(Yes, I know this is a professional blog, but just this once….  After all, when you work online entirely you cannot even put an “It’s a Boy” balloon in your cubicle, so this is the best I have available.

Mandatory disclosures:  Mother and baby are fine.  The e-cigar and snus tin were both empty, and do not represent endorsements of specific products just because they were what I happened to have around the house.  7 lb 8.8 oz (that is just to annoy Paul who wonders why everyone reports babies’ weight as if it were an interesting statistic — so how about this one, Paul:  head circumference was 13″).

– Carl V. Phillips

    With my best wishes to this brand new addition to the world’s population. May his future be bright, peaceful, and free of harm.

    Woo Hoo!!! Congrats Dr. Carl.

    Finn is a great Irish name, we had a giant called Finn McCool who left us some great stories and even geographical curiosities.

      Then you must read, if you haven’t, At Swim Two Birds by my favourite author of all time (Flann O’Brien).

    My point is that if we are going to report babies’ weights then weights should also be reported on other momentous occasions such as graduation or marriage.

    congratulations carl and karyn! i am so so so pleased, by this post, by the news of mother and baby’s health, and by the noteworthy circumference of young Phinn’s head.

    all good wishes from rainy eastern ontario!


    (paul: i think this is an excellent idea. it only makes sense.)
