Minions #137 - Quiet Riot

Stand by, following the usually commercial jibber-jabber for a generous severance package from your Minion Master!


Your visit is important to us. Please give all your precious metals to the nearest Minion and stare mindlessly at the screen for a message of real change from your Maverick Minion Master, following the usual commercial interruptions.

Minions at work is inadequately supported during this financial crisis by your purchases from our web stores and our advertisers. Feed the economy and 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. 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!)

Greetings, Livid Bruises!

Here we are again. Some weeks I just get tired of the Minions just sitting and standing around. Every once in a while it's good to put some action into things. I don't know how funny this is, but it does have action!

Speaking of action, here's a little plug for another action-figure-photo-comic that I enjoy. Alien Loves Predator has recently returned from a hiatus. It's the story of what happens when two single, male, aliens share an apartment in New York. Be warned, this strip often isn't office or family-friendly, and it has something to offend everyone. But it makes me laugh on a regular basis, and I'm glad to have it back. If you're up for it, check it out here.

By the way, I noticed a couple of new things on my Blogger control panel. Turns out, Minions at Work has followers! Actually, this is a new feature that makes it easier to follow your favorite blogs (like this one, natch), and as a bonus, you can get your little icon to appear on blogs that have the proper widget installed. So I've installed one here. Look for it in our sidebar, and just click the link there if you'd like to add yourself as a follower.

For those of you in the U.S., have a happy Thanksgiving. For the rest of the world: suck it up, dudes. Just another week. Either way, see you next time...

- Your Minion Man of Action, Steve.

And don't forget to run out and spend your last few dollars on that
new anthology with a great new story by Mrs. Minion Master! It's called "Witch High," and features stories by 14 top authors about the students of Salem Township Public High-school #4." Sure, Halloween is over, but don't let the fun end there!

I know that feeling. You just got on the phone and then visitors arrive. Never fails.

Great work, Steve.

Sounds like my house when the kids are on break ... can't get a thing done.

LOL! I've experienced some Thanksgiving gatherings that pretty much looked like this!
