Overlords #121 - Drinking Problem
It is written, "He who clicks the above panel shall receive either untold riches, or DEATH! Or maybe just a bigger version of the cartoon." Are you brave enough...or foolish enough, to try?
Bah! Your presence is insignificant to us, worm! Open your wallet and stare mindlessly at the hypnotic messages that follow! It...is...your...DESTINY!
Come in Minion Base! Come in Minion Base! Do you read? We are returning to base. Repeat, we are returning to base...
Overlords atWork is inadequately supported by your purchases from our web stores and our advertisers. We COMMAND you to fill our coffers by purchasing tee-shirts, buttons, calendars, hats, undies (we kid not!), and other fine Minions (or Overlords) 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
(We command you to be naughty! Oh! You like it, don't you?)
Join the Minions reminder email list or we will DESTROY YOUR PLANET!* It's free, it's easy, and you'll never miss a Minions (or Overlords) at Work cartoon (or if you do, it won't be our fault!)
*In the event that YOUR is also OUR planet, the Overlords reserve the right to destroy a substitute planet of equal or greater mass. Of course, we'll send you there first...
This is your Minion Master, Steve, transmitting to you from an undisclosed Lair somewhere in Southern California. I just spent about a year at the San Diego Comicon on Thursday. After some soul-searching, we decided we just weren't up to going back for additional days this year. Too hot, too far, and too crowded. The convention itself is intense, but I'm convinced that an Evil Overlord of some sort is in charge. This is like a giant roach motel for 120,000 people. You can get in (barely), but you sure as heck can't get out.
I will say one thing though: it's a good place to make some new evil friends. Here I am with another out-of-towner I've just met. We've agreed that it would be a good idea to ex-ter-mi-nate all the hu-mans, if only to shorten the lines to collect all the really cool shwag I missed out on. About the only seriously cool thing I picked up were some huge S.H.I.E.L.D. magnets from the Hasbro booth. My new friend had even less, but then again, that could be because his goodie-bag kept slipping off his toilet-plunger arm.
I'll post more pictures of Comicon on my regular blog, the Multiplex, when I get time.
We will be continuing back to Oregon Sunday (yesterday, as I'm transporting a time portal that could cause the collapse of the universe as you know it), via Reno, NV, where we'll spend a few days searching for further evil to participate in. I've never been to Reno before, so it will be an adventure.
So that's it for now. Your Minion Master signing off...
We resume our after-post, already in progress.
Greetings, Insignificant Scum!
You come seeking Minions, and yet, THERE ARE NO MINIONS! We, the Overlords of Evil have sent them on vacation! WITHOUT PAY! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha!
When the Minions finally return, in August, we will make them work overtime UNTIL THEIR EYES BLEED! And that's a LOT of overtime! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha!
Now, tremble before the most awesome assemblage of evil ever awesomely assembled! We give you: THE LEGION OF DREAD!
Fear our logo! Tremble before our mighty cartoon adventures! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha!
* cough, cough, cough *
Old business is left over from the previous management. The Overlords of Evil and the Legion of Dread do not endorse this old business, but they will gladly take responsibility for any damage or harm it causes. Worms.
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.
END OF OLD BUSINESS
Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha! Ha! Ha-ha-ha! Ba-ha-ha-ha-ha-haha-ha-haha-ha-hahaha-ha-haha-hahaha!
Ah! That's good!
We COMMAND you to return next week for a new cartoon! Obey, or suffer the pain of a thousand Star Wars Christmas Specials!
Your Lord and Masters,
Dr. Coldblood, et al.
