Minions #123 - Pengions


Your visit is important to us. Please hand your wallet to the nearest Minion and stare mindlessly at the screen for a back-from-Vacation 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, Flightless-ones!

Yes, I'm officially back, and so are the Minions.

It was a good trip, if tiring. I'm really having doubts about going back to Comicon unless I have a specific business reason to do so. It's a great place to go as a fan to see stuff, and it's great place for the Big Guys to go to promote something, but for the middle-to-little guys to promote, or especially to do business, it's just too big, loud, and distracting. There are other, more effective ways of getting things done.

So anyway, I've seen the Legion of Doom back into their holes to hatch some new evil schemes. I notice we didn't get a lot of comments on the Overlords at Work cartoons. Does that mean you didn't like them? If so, was it that you didn't like my jokes, or the repeated board-room layouts for a month, or that you just didn't like the Overlords at all?

Let me know. We aim to please.

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

Leaving comments is just so much work. I am a lazy MINION.

Love the Penguin's minions, especially the little one on the end.

Name for new minion + No. 20

Question for No. 1. "Since it seems that there are so few female minions, is it hard to get a date? Or to find that perfect someone who understands the difficulties of being a minion?"

As for ideas, well this is currently happening to me. I drive a school bus, and in NZ the contracts for each school are awarded to different bus companies. This year, the company I work for lost all of it's school contracts. Now, I haven't been told offially of this, but I do know that by the end of the year, I am going to have to find another company to work for (no problem there, as they will still need a bus driver for the bus run I do). so, how would minions cope with the above scenario, re: overloards?

By the way, I did like the overlords quite a lot. Just been busy.

I have a question for no.1:
where do prospective overlords hire their first minions from? is there a number you call or do minions just gravitate to overlords?
