I couldn't quite decide on a topic for this one. It was down to "Why wirthling is a narrow-assed hoobajoob" and "Wirthling - He put the '****er' in 'ape****er'". So I picked neither.

In honor of my current situation as job seeker, the topic for #7 will be 'The Job Interview'.

We'll be pretty lax about constraints for this one. Use whatever you'd like in terms of backgrounds, characters, etc. Just keep on the subject of getting or interviewing for a job. That's it.

Gabe

PS - I forgot. Just to make things interesting, you can't use the letter 'e' anywhere in your comic except the title. ANYWHERE. I'll be looking with my giant disqualifying pen which I'll use to scribble out your comic as soon as I see it.

Interview by gabe_billings
2-23-01
I did my undergrad work at Oberlin, and finished up my masters and my PhD in computer science at UC Berkeley.
I've also got an MBA from Stanford, and last year I won the Nobel Prize for literature. Did I mention I do neurosurgery in my spare time?
Congratulations, Mr. Billings. You're hired. I think you'll make a real asset to the team here at Burger King.

Yes, I know my comic has the letter 'e' in it. I can do that because for the next two days I'm god. HAHA! Losers.

Oh yeah, be done with your comics by noon (EST) on Sunday, 2/25/01.

Toodles.

Sorry. I goofed and posted this twice. Impatience, don't you know. Anyhoo, this is the one to use. I put a note in with the other one, and if no one posts there it'll just wander on down the list and disappear.

So, once again, USE THIS THREAD TO POST IN.

Merci.

Christ, how many of you guys are moving? Or does the same person keep mentioning it? I feel like you're about the third person to mention moving.

Maybe it's the crack wearing off.

Ok, I'm not gonna disallow that. But I'd be happier if you didn't try to sneak around the rules with hacker-talk. Though you get some points for thinking somewhat outside the box. I was thinking more of this...

So you want to work at our company, huh?
Yup. I always thought I'd fit into this job.
But you can't add or subtract. This is an accounting firm. What'll you do?
How about if I suck your ****? I didn't go to an all boys school for nothing, you know.
Cock, you say? You start tomorrow. Four am sharp.
Should I bring my hotpants?

Anonymous Vast Corporation, Day
What's this? An applicant for my old job? I'm a honcho now, but that job was awful.
Possibility of promotion in rank has its good stuff, but who would want a crappy job doing what I did?
Working in a chronotransportation division sucks.

I jsut thought of a cool "non-contest". If one person were to start a serial comic strip and set the characters, make the first strip, and determine the next person to do the next strip in the sequence somehow... How to get it to work without people making conflicting strips (i.e.: two strip #2's by 2 different authors)..?

No 'e'? Bah. Child's play. Check this out:

http://partal.com/vademecum/eng/llibres/1.html

Read the first story ("What a Man!"). That's right: no vowels other than 'a'. And awkward as it is, it actually makes sense. It's about this guy who's an international spy/private eye (although of course it can't use those words). That's just hardcore, man.

This contest was kind of eerie, 'cause I'm looking for a job right now too. Seems everyone around here is either job-hunting or moving. Weird.

I like the idea of a serial comic, too. What we should do is get a list of everyone interested in doing it and give everyone a number. Each person goes in turn then passes off to the next in line. When you get to the end, we go back to the beginning of the list. If anyone new shows up and wants to give it a try we tack them onto the end and just ease 'em on into the rotation.
