Ac­tu­al­ly, I’m More of a Cy­lon

Email: Let’s wel­come Joe Smith to the com­pa­ny. He will re­port to Bill Scott.
Copy­writer #1: I find it dis­tress­ing when I don’t rec­og­nize the names of the su­per­vi­sors. Are you sure Mr. Scott is­n’t re­al­ly a ro­bot?
Copy­writer #2: Mr. Scott has been with this or­ga­ni­za­tion for at least three years. He is not a robot…or if he is, they did a damn good job mak­ing him look hu­man.
Copy­writer #3: Sounds like some­thing a fem­bot would say.

It’s Ei­ther That or Get One of Those Helper Mon­keys

Ed­i­tor #1: I have fin­ger toes.
Pho­tog­ra­ph­er: You mean like long and bony?
Ed­i­tor #1: Yeah, I can, like, pick stuff up with them.
Ed­i­tor #2: Do you pinch peo­ple with them?
Ed­i­tor #1: Yeah. I al­ways pinch [my wife]. She hates it.
Ed­i­tor #2: God is just prepar­ing you for when you lose your arms.

Lift­ing, Puk­ing, and Shoot­ing: The Lloyd Roid Sto­ry

De­sign­er: I can’t find a pho­to to rep­re­sent per­son­al train­ers. The on­ly stock im­ages we have are too creepy. Look kind of like an af­ter-school spe­cial.
Writer: Like a mo­lest­ing-kids af­ter-school spe­cial? Or the kind about bu­lim­ia?
De­sign­er: A cross be­tween those and the ones about steroids.
Cre­ative di­rec­tor: Oh. That sounds OK. Use what­ev­er you guys have.
