Called on the Carpet
SISYPHUS: [poking head through door of the Nihilist in Golf Pants’ office]
So, you wanted to see me?
Nice of you to make it in today. We need to talk about how you have been slacking off in your blogging lately.
NIGP: [hurling stapler at Sisyphus]
YOU CALL THAT BLOGGING? A STUPID INTERNET MEME AND A LIST OF WARMED OVER KENNEDY JOKES? AND THAT’S IT OVER TWO WEEKS?
SISYPHUS: [deftly dodging stapler]
Chill dude, chill. I know my production has been down a bit, but I’m sure it will pick up now that I’ve finished Halo 3. On legendary.
NIGP: [hurling a copy of Corporate Board Member Magazine at Sisyphus]
HALO 3? DO YOU THINK I GOT THIS WATCH PLAYING HALO 3?
[NIGP shows off expensive looking watch]
Uh, no, I suppose not.
You’ve got that right. There are going to have to be some changes around here. It looks like I’m going to have to give you a blogging assignment. You will live blog the Democrat debate tonight.
Whooooooooa Dude. I haven’t watched a single debate all season and I’m not about to start with a stomach churning Democrat debate. No way, no how.
Do you realize that even St. Paul has been blogging more than you have lately?
Yeah well, I guess that is pretty bad, but live blogging a Democrat debate with Hillary and Obama …
I’ll tell you what. You can ease the pain by doing one of those debate drinking games while live blogging. A drink every time someone says “change” or mentions Ted Kennedy or tries to pander to John Edwards supporters.
I think someone is already doing the drunk live blogging bit.
So what, everyone steals from everyone on the internet. Besides, you can expense the alcohol.
