DR. Lee Mur
All companies have that one individual that drives innovation and creativity. Dr. Lee Mur is not that. In fact, there are serious concerns that he is even a real doctor. Rumor has it that Dr. Lee is actually a primate that migrated from Madagascar. We don’t believe this nonsense, but there are occasions where we catch him eating office plants. He has also been written up for biting employees. He tends to get a pass from HR due to his cuteness.
