Questions 3 (Minus 2): Recruitment Time!

A Sign of Some Kind

A Sign of Some Kind

This one is easy . . . or difficult depending on your mood.  This isn’t even a question, so much as a challenge to have fun with.  On your blog or in the comments, it’s up to you.

  1. Write a Newspaper Want Ad for Henchmen.


P.S.- For any younger visitors, a newspaper is like the Internet news sites, but they’re thrown at your front door and get ink on your fingers.  You may have seen them lining a bird cage.

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. I’ve caused a bit of an internet traffic jam today, but I always love these. Her’s my five second version:

    Storm the castle with your friends. Share the spoils. Involves skilled work with pointy things. Excellent benefits package, including cremation on the spot you fall, with three professional mourners. Super powers not required, because we will make you a cyborg anyway. Apply today and start in time for our monthly cookie exchange.

  5. Great challenge. Off the top of my head, because if I think about this too much I’ll get really silly…

    Are you tired of the cutesy, bug-eyed, excruciatingly happy creatures in overalls? Do they make you want to crush a grape, or better yet – a banana? Do you want to light candle under them and make a giant Stewart flavoured blancmange? Then you are our kind of minion.

    This is just too much fun to resist.

    Blind ad placed by well-established employer: Seeking adventurous wannabe-henchmen and women who are willing and able to participate in random acts of ______(censored) in places we cannot tell you about until after you sign our client’s slightly voluminous but easy-to-understand-without-a-lawyer contract. Must have experience with split second decision making, have an innate style-consciousness, and be able to identify plot lines and random quotations from all James Bond movies on demand. Must be drop dead gorgeous, since we take pictures of everybody at our annual henchmen & henchwoman party in ________(location confidential). All reasonable expenses pre-paid, with a generous $ 25.40 per diem for your swanky bar tab. If you can’t pry information out of your random daily bar-stool contact for $ 25.40, you’re just not up to our exacting standards. In that case, don’t waste our time, or yours. Keep your soul and enjoy your boring life.
