Back in the dotBOMB era, the final boss I had in my 18 month stay at one company had a strange habit.
Whenever he wanted to tell someone bad news, or "correct" their thinking, or in general tell them how we would want things done (as opposed to how they were currently running smoothly), he would unconsciously take his ukelele off his window ledge of his office, and play it as he was talking to you.
It got to be the standard joke in the office - "Did you here Gene playing his ukelele?!" ... "NO! Who was in his office ?!"
If he hadn't looked like Odo on Star Trek, we probably would have had mini-ukelele's on all our office desks; instead, we had settle for Odo pictures ....
