Budget Steam Cleaning Services are looking for "enthusiastic and outgoing persons" to dress up in bunny costumes to hold a sign and wave at traffic.

The advertisement (found at Jobsearch) reckons this bunny job is "good fun for the right people." The right people? I gotta meet one those.

One Word- Pixar

There's plenty of jobs going at the animation studio/wonderland Pixar. And I tells you what, the geniuses behind Toy Story and The Incredibles enjoy the best looking and most comfy known to the human race. According to Aint It Cool News,

"Instead of cubicles, each of the animators has a customized space.... A lot of the animators decided early on that they didn't want cubicles, so instead, Pixar found these groovy little cottages that they bought for them. Walking through the animation department is like walking through a neighborhood for dwarves. Lots of little houses laid out along streets, each one with an address on the door."

Brillo. I bet the discussions in the luxurious lunch room are (really well) animated. I'll get me coat.

My fave Denis Walter Kino moment:
"The next number is 69. And remember, Chances is on at 9.30 tonight."

Fave bingo joke.

Fave bingo phrases.
17, the age to catch 'em.
69, meal for two.
27, little duck with a crutch.
