 for pointy-haired
From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

      [after the character in the Dilbert comic strip] Describes the extreme
      form of the property that separates suits and marketroids from hackers.
      Compare brain-dead; demented; see PHB. Always applied to people,
      never to ideas. The plural form is often used as a noun. ?The
      pointy-haireds ordered me to use Windows NT, but I set up a Linux server
      with Samba instead.?
