[MANAGER]:  Welcome aboard.  Let me introduce you to the validation team.

The manager and new hire walk to the validation lab.

[MANAGER]:  This is Aiko.  She does the black box testing.

[AIKO]:  Nice to meet you.

[NEW GUY]:  Black box tester, heh?   猿も木から落ちる.

The two bust out laughing together

[MANAGER]:  And this is Horatius.  He does the white box testing.

[HORATIUS]:  You can call me either Horace or Ace for short.

[NEW GUY]:  Just as long as I don’t call you Hor.  Ha ha…

No laughter

[MANAGER]:  Now that you know the team, you will be responsible for the gray box testing.

[NEW GUY]:  Is that the British grey or American gray?

[MANAGER]:  I don’t understand your question.

[NEW GUY]:  Never mind.  Where do I start?

[MANAGER]:  I think you should start by writing a test plan.

[NEW GUY]:  That’s easy.  I’ll mix a little of Aiko’s black box test plan with Horace’s’ white box test plan to get my very own gray box test plan.

[MANAGER]:  Your cube is over there.

[NEW GUY]:  The one with all of the gray boxes stacked around it?

[MANAGER]:  Yes.
