Rrrring. Rrring.....Press three to speak to ME!


Every evening at about dinnertime, Mr. and Mrs. Slug are interrupted by the ringing of the telephone. They often receive a call from a tape recorded voice that will try to sell them something. Mr. Slug thought to himself, "Self, why can't we use that same technology to find more employment opportunities?" Mr. Slug found an Auto Dialer machine at a garage sale and hooked it up to his phone line. He made a recorded message asking potential employers to consider hiring him, and let 'er rip. That machine was incredible! It made calls to all corners of the country! Mr. Slug got calls back from the Chief Excecutive Officers of many different companies who were impressed with his marketing savvy. It sure helps to know how to speak the language of big business! Mrs. Slug has suggested that Mr. Slug should simply manufacture and sell the machines to job seekers and write his own ticket instead of working for some other slug. Now THAT's using your tail!

Hi, Mrs. Slug / aka Ms. Oregon!
Your blog is just amazing. I can't stop laughing. What a treat to fall upon it. Actually, I ran into you at Gry's: your comment about the two swans (ducks?) was hilarious in light of prior pigeon doings! I'm a follower!
Best, Margaret

Why Mrs, Slug, you are so very, very clever to draw cartoons on your husband's lunch napkins in the morning before he uses them or (if he is a blue collar worker) drops them in the mud. This is assuming, of course, that you draw on THAT DAY's napkins rather than leaving YESTERDAY'S napkins until the following morning when you prepare him another lunch and draw your cartoons on the old napkins. Of course, your loyal viewers faithfully assume that the time you spend cartooning doesn't detract from the time you spend actually preparing his lunch because, on prolific cartooning days, he might not get a lunch at all.
