Being a Minion

with 2 comments

Several of the Evil Mastermind ads have featured SourceGear employees as minions. I make an appearance as Minion 72 in Episode 8, which appears in November issues of Dr. Dobb’s and MSDN.

The people who created this comic claim it’s coincidence that Detroit is one of the banishment buttons, despite the fact that I spent 15 years there before moving to Champaign. I’m skeptical. I just think none of them want to admit responsibility. My wife nearly started a brawl when she overheard someone badmouthing Detroit after the Michigan-Illinois game Saturday. If she finds out whose idea it was, there could definitely be trouble. She looks sweet, but don’t be fooled.

  1. I love the picture. I think it’s interesting that Zod came back but also took a much needed trip to Urban Outfitters to replace the rubber body suit. And also apparently is on a tight schedule and has decided on a Ken Cole timepiece.
