THE MINION'S LAIR OF MERCHANDISE
Shoplifters cheerfully disintegrated!
NUMBER TWO'S HOUSE OF NAUGHTY
(It's only as bad as you think it is!)
Join the Minions reminder email list or we will blot out the sun*. It's free, it's easy, and you'll never miss a Minions at Work cartoon (or if you do, it won't be our fault!)
*Actually, we're just going to send the Penguin to stalk you with a big, black, umbrella. Budget-cuts and all...
Please report to the briefing room for an important message from the Minion Master:
"Good news everybody! Some of you won't be getting pay cuts! You'll be unemployed!"
Things have been a bit silly here lately, so I decided it was high time to put away the fart-jokes for a bit and get back to the workplace humor that I see as the core of the strip.
I confess, I like this one a lot. I think all of us have been in this moment, when you're feeling good about a place your working, and then it all turns bad, and you suddenly get that sick feeling in your stomach when you realize that the captain of you little ship of industry and/or commerce doesn't have a clue what they're doing.
And really, there's nothing more embarrassing than realizing that they person in charge of a company doesn't even have a clue what the company even does. "We're not selling septic-tank clean-outs people, we're selling smiles and a warm handshake." Yeah, just not clear on the concept.
(Whoops, almost got back to fart-joke territory there, but you know what I mean.)
Hey, you guys can help me out here. Since I'm not currently a wage slave, I'd love to hear your work stories, your idiot boss stories, your idiot customer stories, your idiot co-worker stories, and the things that go on around you that you just can't believe. Anything that might inspire a good "Minions at Work" cartoon. You can send them as feedback, or if you prefer to be more private about it, send it email. I'd love to hear from you.
Till next week, keep passing the links.
