    Executives at more than a dozen generic-drug companies had a form of shorthand to describe how they conducted business, insider lingo worked out over steak dinners, cocktail receptions and rounds of golf.

    The “sandbox,” according to investigators, was the market for generic prescription drugs, where everyone was expected to play nice.

    “Fair share” described dividing up the sales pie to ensure that each company reaped continued profits. “Trashing the market” was used when a competitor ignored these unwritten rules and sold drugs for less than agreed-upon prices.

    Golly, that sounds pretty messed up.

    Titled Voice Effects Based on Facial Expressions, the patent relates to technology that would allow an iPhone user to bark while using the Animoji feature, and have a real dog bark come out of the speaker instead.

    “Technology” has “allowed” this and a trillion other dumb@ ss things for a long, long time. My patent “relates” to “technology” that would “allow” (GROUNDBREAKING!) an iPhone user’s dog to bark into the phone and have a photo of the user’s face reciting lines from Confucius to a third party instead. My other patent “relates” to “technology” that would “allow” (NEVER BEFORE POSSIBLE!) a user’s husband to bark into the phone and have the dog’s bark come out of the user’s mother-in-law’s face instead. And yet another patent “relates” to “technology” that would “allow” (FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!) a picture of Director Iancu’s weeping face to be projected above every urinal in your office building every time an “artificial intelligence” patent is correctly deemed to be ineligible g@ rbage.

    It’s soooo awesome and fun bein’ an “innovatah” in the Silly Con Bro world. Now if you’ll excuse me I’m going to “mine some data” and sell it, which is something nobody ever did before because data has only been around for a couple decades. Oh, did I say “data”? I mean “big data”, which is totally different because, hey, “big.”
