The Diamond as Big as the Ritz.

"The Diamond as Big as the Ritz" is a short story by F. Scott that I have always liked. You can read it here:

I got to thinking about the story--its title actually, as I was presenting this afternoon, ideas to a fairly luminous CMO of long and storied tenure. What I wondered about is how high the foam-core mountain would be if you totaled up all the boards that have been presented to this guy over the decades.

I wonder if this is how this how CMOs rib each other.
"I passed Mt. Rainier on Tuesday and it's full-steam ahead to Kilamanjaro."
"That's baby stuff. I'm so far into the Himalayas it would make your head spin."
