Minons #117 - Bad Trip

PLEASE READ ON AFTER THIS WEEK'S CARTOON AND COMMERCIAL FLIBBER-GIBBER FOR AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ABOUT THE NEAR-FUTURE OF MINIONS AT WORK!


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!"

and

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.)


Greetings, Gas Guzzlers!


Yes, it's true, the Minions are going on vacation. Not just Number 2. ALL of them. Yup, you won't see a new cartoon with a Minion in it for the next FIVE WEEKS!

But never fear. I wouldn't leave you without cartoons. Oh, no! Because while the Minions are all going on vacation, the Overlords are hard at work. In fact, Doctor Coldblood has called together all the Overlords for their annual convention of the...

Yes, the greatest Masters of Evil in all the world, Doctor Coldblood, Cap'n Rehab, Doctor Funkystein, General Zed, and Captain Hardluck have united to doom us all, if they can figure out a way to agree on anything!

So tune in all through July (and a little of August) for your weekly installment of Overlords at Work!

And then in five weeks, the Minions will be back, tanned, rested, and ready to goof off at the earliest opportunity!

Hey look at us! (Or our book covers anyway.)

I just put together a little mosaic of images of book covers and posted it on my regular blog. See it here. These are MOST of the books in which my wife Chris or I (or both of us) have appeared. It's pretty nifty to see these all at a glance. Check it out, and see what we do the rest of the week!

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, when he returns, 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

We're getting ready to drive from Oregon to southern California and back. The good news is our VW New Beetle gets 40+ MPG. The bad news is, it uses diesel. Diesel is selling for $4.79 here at the moment, and I hear it's over $5 in California.

Maybe they'll get smart and get the trains running again - like Europe.

Can't wait to see what the Minion Masters Meeting is like. Hey, The MMM!

[Sorry]

P.S. How 'bout Minion -1 for the new guy? Anybody with a dart in his head is starting at a deficit.

Cool one Steven, I think we all can relate to the current economic crunch!!!

LOL! The Minions version of a stay-cation!

Hi Steven!

I think that the new Minion number should be Minion Number 13. He already has ANOTHER hole in his head. He could be the comic relief type Minion like Kenny from South Park. Minion 13 could be the one that the other Minions are always having him do all the dangerous stuff.

Just a thought...Joel the SailorDude
