Minions #222 - That's Gotta Hurt
Stand by, following the usual bad-prequel for a mop-up from 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 Mutant Tea-baggers just before they can answer your call. It's just one more way of saying, "we care, just not about you."
SUPPORT THE FORCES OF EVIL, WITHOUT WHOM YOU'D HAVE TO LIVE IN SOME BORING UTOPIA OR SOMETHING! HELP FINANCE "MINIONS AT WORK" BY BUYING STUFF YOU WERE GOING TO BUY ANYWAY! IT'S LIKE STEALING, ONLY LEGAL! 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: THE MINION'S LAIR OF MERCHANDISE "Satisfaction guaranteed or we'll make make you buy something else!" and NUMBER TWO'S HOUSE OF NAUGHTY (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, Disturbances in the Force!
Yes, we're late this week. Combination of looming deadlines, bad weather, computer issues, jury duty (yes, I, your evil Minion Master was on a criminal jury last week!) tripped me up. I blame the Forces of Good. Or possible Canada.
I don't like to revisit characters or themes so soon, but because it was what I had ready, and because our month layoff has left me with no inventory to fall back on, we're back to Doctor Head-in-a-jar this week. Deal with it.
Doctor Head-in-a-jar's new Cafe Press Store!
Okay, your head is still spinning (no pun intended) about me, on a jury. Okay, I'll make it worse. I was the foreman! Hey, I'm not a Minion Master for nothing here. Don't worry. It was a hung jury though, so feel confident that things went predictably, horribly wrong. (Okay, seriously, I think a hung jury may have been the best outcome possible here. But I HATE being serious around here, so back to foolishness!)
We'll be back next week. Maybe even on time. See you then!
- Your "Hang-em" Minion Master, Steve
