I got rumbled by someone at work, so I won't be posting any more stories from that site.

It will, however, make me more determined, though my output may be reduced.

Pray for me.

Alright, I've asked the nuns from my Nuns Gone Wild article (shameless plug) to pray that your employer dies a firey death. Let me know if it works.

What in the world do you do for a living, Monkey, that makes it possible to write satire at work?

Are you working for the Onion? or just taking money in an overnight parking lot?

Laugh at your problems. Everyone else is.

Maybe he's a speechwriter for a politician. No, wait. That wouldn't really be satire. Lies, yes. Irony, possibly. Distortion of facts, yes. But satire? No way.


Being raised by an Italian mother on the Mexican border made me realize that entrees are not edible without jalapenos, onions, green chilis, or garlic. Hence, I am the J-man.

I'm a proofreader. I'll have to get on the net at home then I can really start to post some stories.

Know where you're coming from Monkey - I have to write at work as I don't have internet at home.

"Rumbled"? Not familiar with this idiom. Does this mean something like 'constipated' since your output may be reduced? Or, does it mean something like 'screwed' or 'raped' and now you're just too sore to put out?

To help me understand, please advise.

Rumbled. grassed-up, spragged-on

One of the 'managers' discovered that I was using company property (and time) to send stories to The Spoof.

I was informed that I must not do this anymore.

Just found out today that my company has now hired someone to sit in the corporate office and do nothing but monitor all of the e-mails passed back and forth between over 1200 computers and monitor all websites that people log onto.

No more checking the personal e-mail or the Spoof discussion boards at work.

All this money spent monitoring people, they should do a study to see if worker production goes up or down as a result. I'm guessing they'll find it goes down and costs them money they wasted "policing" people. I try to refrain at work, but have to admit looking, but takes out the boredom and I get things done quicker when I can take a little 2 minute mental break.

I took a 'little two minute mental break' in 1989, but it stuck and it's still going on . . .

My meds don't seem to help much . . .

Isn't a "rumble" a gang fight as in the musical "West Side Story"?

If so, perhaps ol' Monkey's singing his lungs out about the benefits of immigrating to the United States.

I won't even start in the words "to put out".

There *does* seem to be a dark irony about a proof reader writing spoof stories at work.

Hey Monkey, it's a bad rap you getting rumbled 'n all, but according to a source close to the Knightsbridge grocer, it was the establishment.

How long do you think you can go on dishing the Royal Family before you come to a conclusion in the Hyde Park underpass?

Think about it Monkey... they got YOUR number.
