My new sure-fire formula for career development

I work for the most inane, whiney, inarticulate, editor who
can barely put two words together, and doesn’t have a clue about agriculture
(have you seen her pathetic excuse for a garden), and keeps everyone guessing
on her true hair color and on top of that I craft these near-genius and
compelling articles that generate millions of dollars for Canadian producers,
and they are jammed into this snot-nosed rag of a publication, that epitomizes
the definition of hackneyed, yellow tabloid journalism and isn’t even worthy of being at the bottom of my bird cage.

I don’t REALLY believe any of that, but I thought I would go
with this new Charlie Sheen winning formula on “how to keep your job and get a
pay raise.” I am getting about $380 per issue of Grainews now and I am hoping
to push that up another 50 bucks. And if management tries to maintain the high
road position of “Lee has been under a lot of stress, and is having a bad day”
baloney, I will just crank up the insults even more.

I may have been born at night, but it wasn’t last night, and
I can see what has to be done to insure my celebrity status as dean — and dare
I say — as KING of agricultural journalism in the galaxy and beyond. It is time I let these bozos know not only what, but where the bear did it in the buckwheat.

You’re my man Charlie! Thank you for opening my eyes and the
eyes of those millions of dough-headed, androids who clomp to work or sit on a tractor every day,
even with the slightest notion they are happy doing what they are doing for
perhaps a little less than the $1.8 million you earn per week for sitting on
the couch drinking or bedding some bimbo. Man, that is a caliber of acting you
don’t find every day.

I plan to rail on in this column for another few weeks, in
hopes of really sticking it to these dopes — ah, hell, I am going for 75 bucks
more. Just keep checking my blog for progress reports, and if you don’t mind, Charlie, let me know how things are going for you. And I am sure you will.
