On the upside, this gives creatives a fabulous weapon when trying to get work through the approval chain. If you experience any resistance, just quote Bill Bixby...
"Don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."
Then whoop and gibber and throw things (note: self-mutilation may be seen as excessive by some). Results may vary.
