Copied/pasted from real work emails between my boss and me today. Sorry about the redaction...it's necessary for various reasons. And no, we weren't joking.

Me: Still, it might be cheaper to train a monkey to press buttons upon certain types of visuals. On the other hand, we could go a different route. What about redacted sex? Redacted pornography redacted, after all. So, what if we redacted and redacted live webcam redacted do whatever they ask.

Me: Which one do you like? The monkey training or the webcam girl?

Me: Programming redacted to understand redacted versus redacted on a webcam. (I mean I'll ask if there's an inexpensive way to make them redacted, but are you interested in the second idea.)

Boss: still not sure how that connects to a monkey or web cam girl... so both I guess to be safe.

Me: Redacted safe redacted sex.
My boss rocks. Even if she has no idea what she just gave me permission to do.
