Background: On this week’s episode of Silicon Valley, Pied Piper programmers Dinesh and Gilfoyle (Kumail Nanjiani and Martin Starr) created a SWOT board to help decide if they should let a douchey stunt driver named Blaine die. SWOT boards, for those of you who are blissfully unaware of corporate jargon and gobbledygook, break down a potential decision into four categories: strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Dinesh and Gilfoyle made theirs because the stunt driver was an ass to them when they tried to correct his faulty math on an upcoming jump, and because he had a hot girlfriend named Gina who Dinesh liked. It was all very morbid.
It was also really, really funny. You can read a bunch of the cards containing their various reasons for each category if you examine the banner image closely, but Entertainment Weekly was able to track down the full list. Some highlights:
