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.

June's Disgruntled Employee of the Month: Barbara Ashley, Manager, Amalgamated Humor Visitor's Center/Gift Shop

Gary Newbrunswick: So, I assume this is the busy season for you?

Barbara Ashley: Oh, you bet. Families come from all over to visit the plant during the vacation season and they end up right here at the end of the tour.

GN: Yes, I noticed there's really no way to exit the building except through here. Odd stuff.

BA: Oh we have everything you could possibly want to commemorate your visit to Amalgamated Humor. Cap'n Wacky t-shirts, commemorative plates, spoons, comic books, figurines, bells, snow globes, towels, pillow shams, tissue cozies, pens, pencils, erasers-

GN: These are just pink erasers with 'Amalgamated Humor' written on them in pen.

BA: Yes, you have to be careful, or else those will depreciate in value. Let's see, where was I? Oh, yes- dashboard hula Cap'n's, greeting cards, auto bingo games, Cap'n Wacky space ice cream-

GN: What?

BA: Right here- the kids love it.

GN: It seems that you've just taped a Cap'n head over the astronaut on the label, here.

BA: Oh, no. It just looks that way because of the mynar packaging.

GN: Mylar.

BA: No, I'm sure you're wrong. Over here, we have marbles, glasses, mugs-

GN: What this? This is one of those things that you shake up and it snows inside with the New York skyline in it.

BA: No, that's the factory.

GN: No, Barbara. No, it's not. That's New York. This stuff is just crap! It's all complete crap.

BA: I don't think -

GN: Absolutely useless junk!

BA: Well, fine. What's your point, Gary?

GN: Well, nobody buys this crap, do they?

BA: Sure they do - by the truckload.

GN: Oh, well that's OK then.
