The White House has an Easter Egg Roll, but I’m having Easter egg rolls!  Thanks, Chinese trading partners!  I never thought  you were manipulating currency…

Internal Memo for Wednesday, 4/5/17

Good Morning,

Well, fuck it, I tried.  I did absolutely everything I could to make this company profitable and give back to the shareholders and fuck over everyone who doesn’t work for us and enrich myself greatly by quasi-legal means.  And what did I get in return?  The Syrian government is killing children with chemical weapons and North Korea is firing ballistic missiles at Japan.  Meanwhile, the United States has a real estate shyster and the head of a fossil fuel company doing diplomacy.  Oh, and did I mention that at least one of those two DIDN’T WANT THE FUCKING JOB IN THE FIRST PLACE?  Now it’s only a matter of time before every single one of us is incinerated in the greatest extinction event since the dinosaurs.  WHICH EXISTED, MIKE PENCE.  JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.

It is with a heavy heart that I present to you what may very well be the last business of our lives.

At ease, loyal serfs.

It has come to my attention that we’ve hired some new blood here at the company, and I for one would like to say: washaatke!  For the uninitiated, that’s “welcome” in Balochi, a language spoken only in a small and very secretive province of Iran.  Many of our new hires hail from this region, as they will work for cheap and have expertise in one increasingly important area: weaponizing nuclear materials.  Business!

Internal Memo for Saturday, 2/13/16

Happy Lent, sheeple!  In celebration of our oldest and Christianest holiday, I’ve decided to give up not writing memos for forty days!  No, that doesn’t mean you’ll be getting a memo a day (who has time for that?), but it does mean you’ll be getting them regularly from now until the end of time.  Seeing as North Korea just tested a long-range missile, I should be off the hook soon.  Business!
