I use business clip art in my PPTs. They have images of meetings and such - that would work.
Funny it returned the 3 Stooges on that search.

Just a symptom of the intellectual level here on the internet. I searched long and hard for an animated gif to represent the feeling "We're all adults." Nada. Hundreds of barfs, moons, assaults, and even a 3 Stooges smilie, but nothing celebrating adulthood per se.

I just loved the Muppets!  It was my favorite show when I was little.

Personally, I've always liked the moniker: Faux Noise ... 'cuz they don't deal in straight NEWS, and even genuine NOISE has more reality than what they have to spout.

An on-line friend of mine refers to them as FoxSpin. I've been using that a lot lately.

Good one, D.O.S, but that would be so insider that others wouldn't know who you're talking about. How about FOX Faux news?

Faux News is good. I like that one. :)
