Corpolish™ was founded in June 2009 by a drunken corporate slaves after a long session of happy hour for reasons that include: venting about managers, passive aggressive behavior, being underpaid, office politics, gossips around the coffee maker, awkward corporate gathering, fake smiles, countless hours of surfing on the internet on company time, fornication with co-workers, being politically correct, spreadsheets, documents, file cabinets, non-smoking policies, overweight employees, department birthday cake gathering, policies and procedures, AND all the bullshit that spills into our personal life.

Our goal was to create a site that was revealing in nature while concealing the identity of everyone involved because we don’t want anyone getting fired.  Well, except for celebrities and politicians.  Who cares about those bastards?  We reserve the right to post what we feel is appropriate because we can like your manager.  Furthermore, our intention is only to poke fun at the many things we hear people do and say in our everyday lives.
