Kind of a Daffy vocational move?

November 5, 2007

As some of you know, one purpose of this blog is to offer career counseling. If I can help recent grads make informed decisions about male belly dancing, contortionism, snake handling, voluntary mutilation and other exciting fields, then I’m a lucky guy.

Now, look at this dude. He’s just shooting a cheap remake of the last scene in Dr. Strangelove, but here’s a tip: if at any time you find yourself, jobwise, atop a rocket-shaped tube like the one that carries Wile E. Coyote into a dynamite factory, then you’ve made a bad career move.

Quit the Looney Tunes Temp Agency at once, and do not listen to your inner duck. Of course, if it’s a choice between riding the red rocket or a gyrocopter
