Disney is currently negotiating to buy Two Geeks Publishing because it
has found that our principal title, "'The Adventures of Anti-Career
Girl," has a massive untapped audience of workplace malcontents in
every industrialized nation. We're talking blockbuster. Plans are well
underway for an international marketing campaign featuring Anti-Career
Girl comic books, animated movies (with associated soundtrack), podcasts,
and a very exciting series of Artist Inaction FiguresTM (including Anna
watching cable tv, Jane Lee surfing the Web for stylish boots, and Quincey
playing World of Warcraft past 3 am).
The sale is scheduled to go through on April 2, at which point we the
authors will become massively wealthy, will quit our day jobs, and will
embark on exciting new full-time careers of artistic creation and baby
tickling. Wishing to share the wealth with our friends, we urge you to
bring your art--finished or in progress--to our April 1 Art-in-Progress
Party, so that we can sign you up with Two Geeks Publishing and see to
it that you are also co-opted by the MegaMediaConglomerate.
True or April fool?
Only one way to find out.
