Minions #236 - I'm Not Trained for This...

Stand by, following the usual double-teaming for an animal-attack 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 acid-squirting endo-worms 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! 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 cash directly to the lair! 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.  Or follow your minion master on Twitter!

Greetings, Double-threat-half-wits!

I've been editing video this weekend.  The bad news, it has absolutely nothing at all to do with Minions at Work!  Ha!

In fact, I've been too busy on other projects to do anything major with the Minions at all, save shooting today's cartoon.  But I have been scheming a bit.  I'm thinking about putting together some Minions cartoon collections in ebook form and releasing them through the Amazon Kindle Store (and possibly other ebook platforms as well).  While the Kindle device itself is black-and-white and not very good with images, there are lots of color platforms running Kindle apps now (iPad, PC, Mac, iPhone, Android, etc.) which might make it worthwhile.

Right now, I'm figuring each book would consist of about 25 selected old cartoons, some new material, and a bunch of new supporting text.  Price to be determined, but it would be $2.99 or less.  Yes, most of this would be material already available for free on the web, but that would hardly be unprecedented in the blog/web-comic-to-book world.  Lots of people have done it, done it quite successfully, even when they're careful to point out that most of the content is free on the web.  Some people just prefer getting things in ebook form, and don't mind paying a little to get it that way.

Of course, it would be another way for you guys to possibly support our evil enterprises at the lair and conveniently show "Minions at Work" to your friends.  But I'm also thinking we might reach a new audience who aren't the web-comic type.

Anyway, as always, your thoughts, ideas, and suggestions are valued and ignored (or, if we like them, stolen), so enter a comment if you have any thoughts.

Martians are cats, right? I knew it!

All hail, Tinkle!
