#SharePointProverbs : Humour :)

No Gravatar

On Thursday night a trend started on twitter called #SharePointProverbs – started by Joy Earles – I found it absolutely brilliant, and very funny, so here it is – Proverbs By the SharePoint Community for the community (and enjoyment of every on in IT). I copied this from :Twitter – so it will probably be best if you read from the bottom up :)
