This week, we look at the Cooper River Bridge Run, South Carolina’s 11 percent unemployment rate, Madonna’s baby drama (she just came on my iPod as I was typing this up — creepy), and just how crappy our March Madness bracket is looking (Clue: Only the trash man knows for sure). Here’s one of the questions and two possible answers.

B. A boss that understands coffee filters and toilet paper will always be budget priorities.
D. A rock-solid sob story if the boss starts hinting at layoffs (complete with some rare tropical disease and secret illegitimate children).
