Performance optimization (or not) on a snowy day

A friend sent me this and it totally cracked me up. It's an excellent example of how working on the wrong thing is a bad idea. It doesn't matter how good you think the results of your efforts are, if you've been working on the wrong thing, you've just wasted a lot of time and effort. This also goes to show you that optimizing performance is not just a database challenge, but an every day challenge!

OK I'm really laughing out loud on this one!! Great stuff. We are getting another 3-6 inches of snow tonight here so this hits home...
