Excellent presentation of one of the most boring topics in the universe -- GAAP. When is southwest airlines coming to Australia? I'd fly with you!

Brilliant follow up the original rap. I love the fact that your CEO has truly embraced this and is having fun with what has become a bit of an Internet phenomenum. And yes, give David a raise he he generated so much positive PR for free! Love this story so much I've blogged about it in the UK thanks james
