This survey of fictional and entirely-too-real bosses is sure to put a smile on your face — unless you happen to be working for one of them.

The relationship you develop with your boss can be as time consuming and emotionally draining as a marriage. You are able to observe this ubiquitous creature in their natural habitat- your own psychological case study of the insane, tyrannical, or even admirable person you call your boss.

A review of some of the more memorable fictional bosses, from the ever “wise” Don Corleone to the Mr. Slate of the Bedrock Quarry.
