Too Detroit for Chicago: True Lies by the People who Told Them

Some time ago, I applied for a job where I would live in Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry for a month.  It’s one of the more impressive and enjoyable museums I am aware of and I sincerely wanted a chance to be a part of it.  I can only assume that they were so impressed by my graphically poetic written application that they decided my shining light could not be confined to just one building… because I didn’t get the job.

It was rumored that I was “too Detroit” to go to Chicago. However, I’m just going to blame it on the difficult economy and the fact that there were five-thousand applicants for one position.  It’s a shame because we actually did put a little work into that video.  On an positive note, I do hear unemployment levels are just now starting to drop around the nation.  That’s good news for all of the people who have been waiting the last five years to use their college degrees.

There will be a series of longer comics coming up, two new stories and even a video set to music now that the holiday season if finally over.  But, before they get posted, why not take a look back at some of my older favorites?  Share them with friends.  Let the audience swell and become wrapped up in my greasy orgy of words and images.

…Gross.

  1. Unbridled to say the least

  2. I didn’t know Detroit could be so much fun!

    That would have been a cool job . . . sorry you didn’t beat out the other 4,999 applicants.

    You were robbed.

    Happy New Year!

  4. Who do these Chicago people think they are? You mean they actually look down on others? I got news for them. There are only two other cities in the whole world they can look down on : Newark and Calcutta, India. And if either of those cities get a baseball team that can win more than 17 games a season, they will not have anyone to look down on. What kind of dopey city has a seaport on a lake? Hello. Here in Miami it is very easy to tell which tourists are from Chicago. The men are fat and their wives fatter and so ugly they can stop a train and make it go backwards. They wear black socks with sandals, have the goofiest looking kids ever, and get lobster red sunburn after just 9 minute’s worth of exposure. At least you guys had Al Kaline.

  5. I have a construction management friend who now works at a lego store. I have a friend with an economics degree working at a Starbucks. All interesting applications of their degrees.

    I’ve been trying to find a job wearing a funny hat or maybe just hanging around and posting comments on people’s blogs.

    No go, so far. But as you said, unemployment levels are shrinking. So I hold out hope.

    Happy New Year.

    Chicago doesn’t deserve you, idiots that they are.
    Happy New Year, Mister Posky, all the best.

  7. As a Chicagoan, I would like to speak on the behalf of everyone here and say, “Sorry, we thought you were someone else.”

  8. Artswebshow says:

    Ha ha, you’re hired,
    I like it

  9. bschooled says:

    “Gross”ly seductive, you mean!

    (…huh?)

  10. nursemyra says:

    Shame about that job but it’s a New Year baby…. xx

  11. My favourite part? People taking jokes literally.

    Too Detroit for Chicago.. the town will be set ablaze, for the most undeserving of reasons. Again.
