Minions #111 - Decisions, Decisions


Your visit is important to us. Please hand your wallet to the nearest Minion and stare mindlessly at the screen for a message from your Minon Master, following the usual commercial interruptions.

Minions at work is inadequately supported by your purchases from our web stores and our advertisers. Help us bleed green just a little more slowly by purchasing tee-shirts, buttons, calendars, hats, undies (we kid not!), and other fine Minions at Work items at one of the following stores.

While waiting for your impending doom, pick up a Minions at Work tee-shirt or other great gift:
"Where the beatings will continue until all customers are satisfied!"


(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.)

Greetings, Indecisives!

Okay, I'm late this week, which is a shame, since this kinda has a Mother's Day theme to it.

I've been a little under the weather. I blew out my voice yelling at a rock concert a few weeks ago (man, I really am getting old), which lead to a nagging cough which I just couldn't shake, and I finally realized I was just going to have to stop talking for a day or two until my throat got better.

This has been a strange experience. I mean, the silent thing is kind of mysterious, but it makes it hard to order a cheeseburger at the drive-through. Super-villains have big, booming voices for a reason: they need cheeseburgers. Glad I could clear that up.

Anyway, you'll notice we have a new Minion this week. Actually, I've been planning to bring him in for about six months now, but I could never find the perfect cartoon to introduce him. Now he needs a number. If you have an idea for what number he should be, leave it in a comment. (And yes, 13 is taken. So are 0, 1, 2, 9, 10, and 67 plus a few others I don't remember off the top of my head. So help us name our new Minion...

Didn't that guy appear back in the cartoon with the new interns a while back?

J. Steven York said...

Good eye. Yes, he does make an appearance in the intern shoot if you look closely. But this is the first cartoon to feature him.

There's a back-story on this guy too, which I'll share with you guys at some point. Serve it to say, he comes by the dart in his forehead honestly!

Excellent!! That will teach that particular Minion to remember his full face protection shield for his helmet! Sometimes, they just have to learn the hard way.(grin)
