Charles Magnuson is the ‘Support Triage Captain’ at Twitter. This month, he was awarded the employee of the month trophy. It is the hind quarters of what we have to assume is an Equus asinus, due to the inscription on the nameplate, which reads: You kick ass!

Magnuson goes on to note that he was given the award after his name was drawn out of a hat. So this is probably not an award based purely on performance. Kind of like that participation ribbon I got at my 6th grade Science Fair.

We agree with Paul Haddad of Tapbots. Best trophy ever.
