Marketing really brought the goods this year. Nabbing the #4slot was marketing’s own Jaron Strom as “Lieutenant Dangle” from the TV programReno 911!. Marketing also claimed the#2 prize in Jessica Hoelscher’s uncannily accurate portrayal of Flo from theProgressive TV commercials.

Another strong showing from marketing by ArwenVarner-Howland, who came to work on Friday as Mary Poppins. Even Nina Hassing’s little dog Bailey got into the spiritwith her Marie Antoinette costume!

Marketing’s stiffest competition this year came from the Techteam. They scored both the #3 and #1 spots this year. Jason McLeod won #3 asthe Disney character Wreck-It Ralph, while Brandy Paul’s “THE T-Rex” came in as2015’s #1 Halloween costume. You gotta ask yourself: is Brandy actually insidethat thing, or did she just send a giant stuffed dinosaur to work today? And afollow-up question: would T-rexes have gone extinct if they’d just learned tocode?

Be Good,
