This Just in: Disney Strike

    Following the ousting of Michael Eisner, the Disney Characters have all gone on strike in protest. They remain outside the front gates of Disneyland preventing tourists from entering the park. When asked for comment, Grumpy said, "the whole thing just ****** me off." Sleepy simply remarked, "I'm very tired of all of it." Scrooge McDuck believes it's a matter of cash and told this reporter that if "they just raise the admission rate, everyone will be happy."

    To make matters worse, recent Eisner acquisition The Muppets stand inside the park, ready to work for fear of being caught up in corporate shenanigans and put up on the selling block once again. Kermit was heard to say, "We just want to sing and dance and make people happy." Miss Piggy believes the central problem is that the Disney Characters just don't know how to behave around a star. This has caused great upset among the striking Disney folk, and insults are being hurled through the front gate. A visibly agitated Mickey shouted, "you're all just puppets! Whose hand is up your **** now?" At one point the Muppets, in a show of solidarity, linked arms and sang "The Rainbow Connection," only to be shouted down by The Small World Dolls in their rendition of "Its a Small World After All."

    Late in the afternoon, The Pirates of the Carribbean returned from their outing to celebrate their recent inclusion in the Academy Awards. Lounging on cars in the parking lot and watching all of the activity, they all agreed among themselves that everything could be solved if some ale was passed around. Later they were seen propositioning the Disney Princesses.

    This is hands-down the best piece written yet anywhere on all zee Donnybrooks and Waterloos. Hilarious, great job. I hope you're humor-writing for a living 'cause you should be. Want to come work for us? (FISH'N'WOLFE Productions).

    :D :cool: :D

    I couldn't disagree more, with all due respect. Jennifer, contact me if you're at all interested in a writing gig, part-time from home it can be for starters, if need be. Great piece.

    :D :cool: :D

    that is AWESOME! (even though when I first saw it, I didn't realize what it was and started to flip out) You are a very good writer! I would love to read more stuff like that!

    Of course I wrote it. I live in Orange County, CA, the land of both Disneyland and the Super Supermarket Strike. Inspiration is all around. What can you do?

    I'm not a professional writer, I'm just an H.R. slave. I'd be very afraid to try to work as a comedic writer because I don't think I'm consistently funny. Generally I only write when I'm really irked about something, but the other day at work we were saying "wouldn't it be funny if...." so I wrote about it.

    I'm flattered that you guys like this, but it's only a few paragraphs. Lauren, what do you do that you're looking for writers?

    We create, develop and build our own puppet characters, we commission/custom build puppets for others, we do live-action-mix-with-puppets short films, and we have a humor pilot/series in development, (not a greenlight yet but chances look reasonably good) which I prefer not to discuss publicly at this time.
    I write, direct, and edit, and I'll be needing a few good writers to help me out starting about two months from now. It would be paid work and part-time to start and its nature would allow someone to work from home. I'd feel better not having a detailed forum conversation about it so if you'd like to talk further with me about it please e-mail me. I understand your misgivings but good writers are extremely hard to come by and I'd be willing to accept just the occasional piece from you if need be. Please contact me personally and we can talk further, thanks.

    I would be happy to talk with you in due time, when I start payroll on this. I'll contact you at that time and we can chat. I'd have to see samples of your style, etc., I won't be hiring blind. But we'll do lunch lol. Albeit online.

    Hokay, lol, this is only one of several reasons why I'm not getting public with this. Jennifer12 did not have an available e-mail addy for me to use, that's the only reason I posted here.

    When the time comes, in a couple of months, I will post on MC for positions we will be creating, and discuss what we're doing, and interview, PRIVATELY, the right way, not here for the world to view. lol.

    I'll be glad to talk with people at that time. In the meantime, Jennifer12, please e-mail me at your earliest convenience, I have no way to contact you to talk, and AIM is not the appropriate place for it.

    Thanks, everyone, for your interest.

    LOL, Jennifer that was a great parody! I could easily envision all that actually taking place in pseudo-reality. I LOVE this kind of stuff. And I know very what you mean about being able to suddenly pull great pieces of work like that together when things are at their worst. Doing it helps me to better cope with things that are really getting under my foam.. err.. skin. Did you by chance ever see Disney vs. Henson (DvH)? It was a corny video production that was essentially me ranting about Disney threatening to buy out the Muppets combined with my excessive amount of free time.
