Minions #187 - Putting Your Foot Down

Be sure to check today's Minion Master Message for some lair-related links you're sure to enjoy, plus FREE stuff!

Stand by, following the usual double-dealing for a bitter betrayal by your Minion Master!

Your interminable wait is important to us. To serve you better, a supervisor may feed the representative assigned to serve you to the crab parasites just before they can answer your call. It's just one more way of saying, "we care, just not about you."

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.)

Or just click on our "Donate" button and send us cash add to our "Buy the Minions a Camera Fund!" 100% of your contribution goes to allow starving orphans to buy blankets for kittens.

Nah, not really, it all goes to ME, in order to further the cause of EVIL, and the photography thereof.

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!

Or join our "Minions at Work" group on Facebook.

And yes, I'm finally on Twitter. Follow me. I'm JSteveYork there (clicking on the previous link will take you straight to my profile page.) Eventually I'm getting No. 1 his own account for Minions-related-business, but one thing at a time.

Still: We're everywhere! We're everywhere!

Greetings, Roadside Litter!

First of all, I promised you links, and I give you links, and also FREE STUFF! It an effort to stay ahead of the field of evil, we here at Minions Studios continuously scan the world's news media for signs of super-villain related activity, and there have been a couple of significant new publications this week.

First of all, from that accurate, fair, and balanced news-source, the Onion (at least compared to FOX NEWS) comes a tragic story on those most harmed by climate change. I'm of course talking about super-villains! Read the story HERE.

Next, Cracked.com (who I won't claim is more accurate, fair, and balanced than FOX NEWS -- okay, well, a little...) takes us on a tour of six real-life (like everything in Minions at Work isn't real -- I'm just a documentarian, like Michael Moore, only better-dressed) super-villain lairs. Lots of great pictures and info here, which will be useful in designing your own lair against the forces of good and niceness. Check it out HERE.

FREE STUFF! Speaking of the fun that is murder, mayhem, and rough plumbing, we're only a couple of weeks from the release of Mrs. Minion Masters's new mystery series (or at least, the first volume thereof), "Sink Trap." It's about a female apprentice plumber with a talent for solving crime, and it's great fun.

If it's not your cup-of-tea, I'll bet you know somebody who would enjoy it. This isn't hardboiled PI stuff, so even your sweet granny might like it. (Who are you kidding anyway? She was at Woodstock, fer cripes sake! She isn't that sweet! What? She didn't tell you about Woodstock? See! I told you she wasn't that sweet!) Anyway, score some points by suggesting the book, and dropping Mrs. Minion Master's name. ("Yeah, I virtually hang out with her evil husband all the time. Totally.")

Anyway, if you're just too cheap to buy a copy, Mrs. Minion Master is giving away a signed advance reader copy of the book. This is a highly limited collector's item, so trust me, your inner Gollum wants the Precious. Trust me on this. And there are more give-aways to come. Check out the book, and the give-away, on her mystery site HERE.

Anyway, see you back here next week.
