Sometimes I think working for a fictional business might be easier than working for the real thing. As with any decision, though, there are pros and cons with taking a new job. For example:
Working at “Cheers”
PRO: Everybody knows my name
CON: What if I’m in hiding?
Working as a CSI
PRO: Working with corpses means no need for office chit-chat
CON: Dead people might eat my brains. Which would suck.
Working on 30 Rock’s “The Girlie Show”
PRO: Liz Lemon and I do each other’s hair and talk about boys
CON: Tracy Jordan likes me so much he takes me out behind the middle school and gets me pregnant.
Working for “The Daily Planet”
PRO: Superman and I are like *this*
CON: Superman’s an attention whore and makes me clap every time he unjams the copier
Working at “Pushing Daisie”’s The Pie Hole
PRO: Have you seen Ned?
CON: Have you seen me walk right into Ned – and die?
Working in the Bartlet White House
PRO: Helping the American people
CON: Between Toby, Josh and Sam, I become the impeachment-inducing intern. God bless America!
Working in “ER”
PRO: Saving sick and injured people
CON: The job never, ever, ever gets cancelled, not even with John Stamos.
Working on “NewsRadio”
PRO: Bill McNeal!
CON: Can’t stop picturing Dave in a dress.
Working at Dunder-Mifflin
PRO: Bears, beets and Battlestar Galactica
CON: One day, Toby WILL snap…
Working for “Boston Legal”’s Crane, Pool and Schmidt
PRO: Fulfill my dream of telling an attorney, “No, sir, YOU are out of order!”
CON: Shouting “Kaaaaaaahhhhnnn!!!!” every time I see Denny Crane
