If agency/client teams made tomato bisque: "Tastes delicious. It needs hot sauce. Let's add that and pass it off to the sous chef." "Hmm, not sure about the hot sauce. Take it out and add some salt. Also let's put some squash in there. Let's let the head chef take a look." "No, let's go back to what we had before. Are we sure a spoon is what we need for cutlery?" "Forks are huge on insta right now. What if we did a two-tuned fork?" "YES. Okay, the maitre'd thinks we should put the squash back in." "Would it be possible to also put salt on the fork?"
