Minions #86 - One Heartbeat Away

Lots of stuff going on this week, so be sure to scroll down and check our our entire message!


Don't miss the latest ravings of a lunatic madman, your Minion Master, following the usual commercial gruel...

While waiting for your impending doom, shop:
"If you're not 100% satisfied, then the beatings will begin!"



(Oh, come on. You know you want to be naughty!)

Join the Minions reminder email list or we will send a presidential candidate to kiss all your babies!* 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 Minion Number Two and he's just going to bruise the little tyke's face with his gas-mask. This, however, is still better than being kissed by the candidate.)

A message to ground-zero from your fearless leader:

Greetings, prisoners of gravity,

It's back to the dungeons this week. We only occasionally do anything like topical humor here, but I like this one, so here it is. My biggest concern, in looking back at things, is that the similar cartoon featuring Martha Stewart a month or so back is the first cartoon in a long time to get no comments from you guys. Does that mean you hated the concept, hate Martha, don't know who Martha is, or maybe just your fingers seize up that week. I just don't know. So let me know if this sort of thing amuses you or not. There's something about Number Two staring into a darkened cell that just sets my mind working.

On another note, we've got a new Star Trek the Next Generation Ebook out from Pocket Books. It's called "A Sea of Troubles," the first installment (though it stands alone) in a six-part epic that will fill in the lost year of the U.S.S. Enterprise E's history before the movie Star Trek: First Contact. It's the time of the Dominion War (as seen in the TV series Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) and though she's far away from the front-lines on her shakedown cruise, even the Enterprise can't escape the deadly threat of the Dominion. Check it out on the publisher's site. It's available for immediate download for about the price of a Happy Meal at McDonalds, and it probably tastes better too!

Those of you cool people who are on our weekly reminder mailing list already know about the Minions at Work 2008 photo-calendar I've been working on. Well, it's finished! (When I originally posted this earlier today, I said that it wasn't quite ready and not to order it until I gave the word. Well, I'm giving the word! I spent the evening re-editing all the images and it should be 100% ready to go now! Oh, and it also now has a title. It's the Minions at Work - Evil in WIDESCREEN (Where Available) 2008 Calendar!) It's now available for for purchase at our Cafe Press Store! It's high-quality, spiral wire bound, printed on thick 100-pound weight, high-gloss cover stock. Decorate your faceless cubical-of-doom, or give it as the perfect holiday gift!

And with that, my regular plea to share "Minions at Work" with friends and family, and to drop us a note or, better yet, leave a comment here on the blog. Because love to hear from you.

- Steve

The Martha cartoon was funny, but not as much as your others. It was more, "uh-huh, yeah, that's funny", instead of "I can't stop laughing and now I have a cramp in my ribs from rolling on the floor" funny. Hope this helps. Keep up the great work.
