Minions #164 - One Small Problem


Stand by, following the usual garage sales for a scheduled lube-job from your Minion Master!

Your execution is important to us. To serve you better, your execution may be observed by a supervisor, who will step in to kick you if the corpse is still twitching.

We're now Amazon.com affiliates, which means that if you click on the Amazon link in our sidebar and make purchases from Amazon, a tiny little sliver of what you spend goes to support these fine (maybe even near-mint!) cartoons!

Or visit our Amazon Lair Gift Shop for Minions-recommended merchandise featuring villainy from across pop-culture!

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 souvenir of your visit to the Lair:
"Satisfaction guaranteed or we'll make make you buy something else!"


(For very small values of 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!) Or become one of our followers. See the follower box in our Mighty Sidebar!

Greetings, Exhaust Ports!

Lots to talk about this week, so hang with me here...

I'm running dangerously close to late this week, but I just got the new, larger, bigger, better, "Minions Stage" up and running, and wanted to do a new cartoon shot in the new space. (For a full run-down on the upgrades here at Minions Studios, with pictures, see the previous post.)

Also, I was busy setting up a new "Minions at Work" group on Facebook! If you're on Facebook, be sure to join up and invite all your friends. I'll be posting notices of new cartoons there, and there's a discussion area where you can talk among yourselves for a change. Just search for "Minions at Work," given that the group is called (amazingly enough) "Minions at Work."

International Shipping from the Lair of Merchandise

We had a question in our comment section last week asking if items from the "Lair of Merchandise" can be shipped internationally. Indeed they can!

Keep in mind that the Lair of Merchandise (and "Number Two's House of Naughty" as well) is operated in conjunction with Cafe Press, who handles all the payments, shipping, etc., and set all the policies. Here are the details on international shipping, rates, etc.

The questioner also asked about price conversion. Far as I know (and again, Cafe Press handles this), your credit card will be charged in U.S. dollars, and your bank or card company will do the conversion at the time of charge at the current rate of exchange. Meaning you may have to do a little research to figure out what the approximate charges in your local currency will be, and it may vary slightly from what you figured because exchange rates change constantly.

The good news is, from what I can see, the international economy shipping rates look pretty reasonable. We surly appreciate our fans from around the world. We love to hear from you, and we hope you'll wear your Minion colors (black and white, mainly) proudly!

As for the Lair Gift Shop, that's an Amazon U.S. Affiliate store, and it doesn't appear that you can order there outside the U.S. Other international Amazon sites such as Amazon UK or Amazon DK may offer some of the same items, or not, but you'll have to find them yourself, and far as I know, clicking through our links won't generate any cash for us. But we sure appreciate the thought.

Anyway, I've got to hurry if I'm going to get this out by midnight. See you back here at the improved Minions Studios next week!

- Your Studio Minion Mogul, Steve

looking at this cartoon, I thought "Where in the world did he find a 3 3/4" scale Ruud A/C condensing unit to put on the wall? I then realized that it was some sort of fan housing fro a CPU or something, but it's even the right color for a Ruud condensing unit! If you ever do a 3 3/4" scale cartoon set in a suburban backyard, you're all set to add A/C to the house!
