GR Mailbag: Now the Demented Have a Home

Better Than Money !
From: Mika (*****@aol.com)
Subject: Voluntary work or payed labor?
I would just like to ask if you guys are actually getting 
payed to sit there and play games all day or do you do this 
as a hobby.
-Mika Mage
Hey Mika,

Of course we get paid. And we get to name our salary too, isn't that keen? Duke gets paid in Underoos (he demands that they be Wonder Woman or Jayna from the Superfriends, limited editions). Ben gets paid in Yanni albums. Colin prefers old episodes of Bonanza dubbed in Punjabi. Shawn decided on tiaras made of lifesavers to go with the Miss America outfit that he insists on wearing to work. And all our writers get pickled mango seeds on Fridays.

Paid in full, baby!

-GR, an equal opportunity employer!

Hey Bazil,

Man, you're really getting worked up considering that our "opinion doesn't even matter." And for future threats regarding the 'glosso' region...go right ahead. Due to our grossly enlarged brains, we prefer to communicate via mental telepathy. No tongues needed...Vulcan mind melds, all the way.

P.S. We loved you in Fawlty Towers.
