Amalgamated Humor's Disgruntled Employee of the Month

Each month, Amalgamated Humor's Public Relations specialist, Gary Newbrunswick, puts the spotlight on a valued member of the Amalgamated Humor corporate family. In addition to an extra vacation day and photo with a receptionist from the executive office, they also get a featured interview.

GN: Tell us what you do here at Amalgamated Humor.

T: I labor in the docking area, loading and unloading heavy objects from 18-wheeled chariots.

GN: Also known as trucks.

T: Yes, I have heard them called so.

GN: I hear you're very good at your job.

T: My foreman hath remarked that I am the mightiest worker who hath ever loaded and loaded in his employ.

GN: And what did you do before you came to work at Amalgamated Humor?

T: I was the God of the Thunder in sweet Asgard, home of the Norse Gods. I protected that jeweled paradise from enemies both without and within: trolls, frost giants, and my scheming half-brother Loki.

GN: Hmm. That sounds like a pretty good job. Why did you leave it?

T: Well, Odin, the all-father (and my father) deemed my manner too self-congratulatory and banished me to Midgard to teach me humility.

GN: Midgard?

T: Earth.

GN: Oh. Well, it can be pretty tough working for your own dad.

T: Tell me about it.

G: And are you still a god then?

T: Of course, foolish mortal. Can you not sense the power and majesty of my very being well in my presence?

GN: Uh, not really, but I kind of have a cold right now. Anyway, how much do you get paid there in the loading/unloading area?

T: Nearly double that of the minimum wage for I am the mightiest of all manual laborers!

GN: And how's that humility thing coming?

T: Not so good.
