Minions #116 - Big Job
CLICK ON IMAGE FOR LARGER VERSION
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:
THE MINION'S LAIR OF MERCHANDISE
"Where the beatings will continue until all customers are satisfied!"
NUMBER TWO'S HOUSE OF NAUGHTY
(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.)
Minions Studios has spiders, and I don't mean just the fake kind we use for props. In order to blend into its surroundings, the studios are built into a residential garage built in 1942. The walls are enclosed, but the ceilings are open to the original beams, and that means spiders. Let's just say that the 18" Spider-Man figure displayed crawling along the bottom of my storage loft is enhanced by a covering of real webs... Occasionally I have to sweep the ceiling to take down the build-up of spider webs and cobwebs. I also spot them crawling on the walls regularly.
Mostly they don't bother me though. I've never been bit, and I don't think I've ever had one crawl on me. But I do think about it occasionally, especially after that one time that I saw a spider about the size of a poodle, peering at me from under the pile of papers on my desk one night. But I've never gone so far as to spray the place. I think it would only make the archnapoodle mad.
A reminder. We need input!
First of all, we need a number for our new Minion, seen manning the dart-board in this recent cartoon.
Also, No. 1 needs letters with your "questions for Minions" to be answered in a future video. Surely there's something you want to know about being a Minion, life in the Lair, the forces of evil, or No. 1's early Oscar picks.
Obey your Minion-master, fire up your email and get to it!
- See you next week, Steve
