  7. The Charity "LCA SG Jr" Electric Guitar

    An annual running joke at my company is that due to overspending on the space, food, and booze, the social committee ran out of budget for entertainment. The solution, they say, is to form an all-volunteer, all-employee band! This year was no exception. The band, affectionately known as "LCA"...
