Think it’s original?

 

Just ask Marvin Gaye’s family. Your cute, clever, complex, verbose, self-obsessed, jargon-rich marketing copy can cost you a fortune.  Think it’s original?  Somebody else came up with that same blather years ago, or something close enough to it.  Use the exclusive JOTW Discount Code (C577JOTW) to save $100.

Christian unlocks the door, his mouth in a grim line.

37.)  DUNGEON MASTER, Hemelvoth D&D Gamers, Aurora, Illinois

We are a group of 7-9 avid Dungeons & Dragons players (level 50-plus) seeking an experienced Dungeon Master who can create an active, enjoyable campaign. You must we well-versed in Version 5. And PLEASE don’t be like our last DM, who didn’t like the fact that we were playing Forgotten Realms and didn’t care for the common language, so hardly any of us could communicate with each other. Which was terrible. I was playing a Half-Drow Hexblade and my friend played a Fire Genasi Wizard, and this DM just didn’t know what to do with us. So he tells me and the Fire Genasi, “You two are walking down the street, and you see a tavern that looks like a good place to stop off.” So I said, “What’s the name of the tavern?” He looked puzzled for a minute, and then said, “Uhh…the…Rusty Trombone.” Anyway, a whole bunch of bad RP later, we’re escorting a caravan to some trader outside the city, and DM decides it’s time for a random encounter. So, he rolls, lands on Orcs, and we quickly dispatch them. He decides we need another encounter, and here’s where we come to the problem with random encounter charts. He rolls a sphinx. The sphinx lands in front of us, and I say, “What’s your riddle, sphinx?” The DM looks confused, and says, “Uh, I don’t have a riddle…I figured you would just kill it…” So then, he tells us to wait, and scribbles something on a piece of paper, declaring that his riddle is ready. He announces that I must finish the quote, and proceeds to read the first half of the brothers’ prayer from Boondock Saints. I was dumbfounded. After that, my friends and I just left, and told him that we couldn’t deal with a movie trivia sphinx! So if you’re not like that, please send us an email at LordsOfHemelvoth@DDAurora.net.

40.)  MARKETING DIRECTOR, Indiana Department of Tourism, Indianapolis

The Indiana Department of Tourism seeks a Marketing Director to help us wrap our arms around a new slogan. It seems that our current slogan, “Welcome To Indiana–Except for You, Mr. Limp Wrist; and You, Lesbian Couple; and You, Mr. Non-Christian; and You, Scary Minority; and You, Feminist Demanding Birth Control,” is a bit wordy and perhaps sends a conflicting message. But the law is the law, right? Anyway, we could use some help. Experience dealing with economic boycotts and crisis communications a plus. Resume to: Governor Dick Pence, Governor’s Mansion, Indianapolis, IN 46201.

 

41.)  REPLACEMENT SINGER, One Direction, London UK

World’s most popular boy band has opening for a fifth member, now that Zayn Malik has left. We seek a male between the ages of 18 and 65 with excellent singing skills, dancing skills and ability to work with others in a collaborative , supportive environment. Frequent travel; long hours; fame; groupies. You’ll probably even get to meet Ellen DeGeneris! BTW we were just kidding about the “18 and 65” part; if you’re not between the ages of 18 and 21, we’re going to come up with all kinds of “legal” excuses to eliminate you. Resume and 8”x10” glossy photo to: 1D, Piccadilly Circus, London UK 1C5 W7D. No phone calls.

***  Weekly Piracy Report:

 

034-15   02.02.2015: 1630 LT: Posn: 10:37S – 150:45E, Papua New Guinea.

Six robbers armed with guns and knives in an orange and white dingy approached and boarded a local passenger boat. Shots were fired in the air. The Captain emerged from his cabin in a smoking jacket, holding a glass of claret, and said “What’s all this, then?” One of the robbers replied, “I am the captain, now.” “Oh, no you’re not,” the Captain replied. The Captain and the robber argued for several minutes, after which time the robbers said, “You’re no fun anymore,” and left.

 

033-15   11.03.2015: 0100 UTC: Posn: 10:15N – 107:02E: Vung Tau Anchorage, Vietnam.

Duty AB onboard an anchored bulk carrier noticed robbers on deck. “You’re not supposed to be here!” he said. The intruders apologized and robbed a gas station instead.

 

032-15   07.03.2015: 0930 LT: Posn: 06:13.11N – 119:50.18E, Around 18nm NNW of Laparan Island, Philippines.

A suspected mother vessel disguised as fishing vessel deployed six high speed skiffs which chased a bulk carrier underway. The persons onboard the skiffs wearing camouflage clothes circled around and attempted to board the ship. Master raised alarm, water spray system activated, increased speed, took evasive maneuvers, broadcast security messages continuously via VHF channel 16 and contacted Philippines navy for assistance. None of this mattered because the ship hit a rock and sunk. The End.

 

036-11   02.07.2015: 1800 LT: Posn: 12:09S – 134:45E, Port of Singapore.

A boat entered Port of Singapore and this dude announced, “This is a robbery, everyone put your hands up!” which made absolutely sense because have you ever been to the Port of Singapore? It’s huge and the dude didn’t even have a megaphone. So, everyone’s ignoring the dude and he’s getting frustrated so he moves his boat up to this cargo ship and just ever so slightly taps the leeward side. And a whole bunch of dudes on the cargo ship come running over to the side and say, “Dude, did you just hit our ship?” And the dude says, “Maybe I did and maybe I didn’t,” and taps the boat again and then takes out a set of keys and just runs it along the hull. And the guys on the ship yell, “Oh, no you didn’t” and they run over and get a water cannon and just blast this dude with a three-second spray that knocks him to the boat’s deck. And he’s sputtering and swearing and the guys on the ship are laughing and then they drop the anchor on the dude’s boat and sink it and he has to swim all the way to the docks and he didn’t even have enough money to go to Starbuck’s.
