*Inspired by a particularly bad comment section on the internet that was condemning someone else’s stupidity.

I don’t always speak in internet memes, but when I do

Itโ€™s for that awkward moment when

I notice that one does not simply express himself naturally.

Ain’t nobody got time fo’ thought?

It’s gotten Very Wow! One Gif! So Lazy!

Am I Forever Aloneย in this?

Now Hiring: Minions/Henchmen

Do you have what it takes to be our underling?

  • Poor accuracy with a firearm. Canโ€™t hit a still target at point blank range.
  • Unquestioning loyalty. Even when your employer is aiming the Death Ray at Earth.
  • Basic hand-to-hand combat ability. At the basic level, you must have at least two hands.
  • A flexible schedule. Heroes invade our base at all hours of the day. You must be available at a momentโ€™s notice.
  • No real skillsโ€” aside from the ability to contribute to an ever-increasing body count.
  • A one-dimensional personality. Zero-tolerance for stealing the spotlight from your boss, especially during his lengthy monologues.
  • Little value for your life/wellbeing. Preferably a value less than $15/hour.
  • Bad guy material. Not just a good guy trying to sneak into our base.

Does this sound like you? Then you might have what it takes to be the newest addition to our ever-growing army of foot soldiers!

Benefits include an excellent dental plan and funeral coverage in the event of your (likely) deathโ€” however, we are currently in the process of expanding our in-house cemetery so a wait-list is in effect. You will also receive a free โ€œFeels Good to Be Badโ€ T-Shirt, and complimentary โ€œIโ€™m My Own Minionโ€ mug when you join our ranks.

All hires must sign a contract to waive our legal responsibility in case of accidental, incidental or disciplinary injuries. All potential employees must be comfortable wearing the company uniform at all times. Helmets come with a mouth slot for food entry (we are still working on breathing functionality).

Please send your resume and cover letter to our secret base at 135 Underwater Volcano Blvd. Your application will then be redirected to our actual location at 45 Moon Base Dr. in order to maintain the secrecy of our real secret base. We look forward to having you work under us.

*We are an equal opportunity employer, however for legal reasons we cannot employ you as a minion if you look like this:




The cursor blinks on a blank page. Several moments of struggling pass, and then a silence sets in that calls for the curtain to rise, for the performance to start. The keys click and clack as ten determined digits beat at them like drums. His muse takes him by the hands and together they dance on these fading letters. Sometimes they step on each otherโ€™s toes, but the beat does not stop.
