I just read this post written by Jack at Jack’s Shack about how a growing number of employees are being fired from their jobs because of statements or opinions made about their workplaces. It made me realize that I really haven’t been very smart since starting this blog. Not only do I include my real name up on top, but now my mother is writing comments using her real name. In the past couple of months, I’ve made fun of, andor insulted companies, babies, Mormons, bagel shops, and the city of New York.
In my last post, I even mocked the upcoming Indiana Jones film, which may hurt the feelings of Mr. Steven Spielberg himself — which is a real no-no here in Los Angeles. That’s a shame because, one day, I’d like to work with the talented Mr. Spielberg, one of my idols. I hope this doesn’t hurt my chances.
Mr. Spielberg, the joke was in good humor. I know Indiana Jones 4 will be a big success. It wasn’t like I was making fun of "1941," probably your worst movie. (Damn it! Can’t I just shut up?!)
In his post, Jack gives this good advice to his fellow bloggers who may be worried about the effects of their blogs.
It is possible to blog from other places and to speak about the office, but you have to be careful with the details and specific information in your posts. Nothing profound there, just common sense.
Smart. Be careful with the details. Be vague.
I would now like to officially re-write my last post:
At a big gala for a sci-fi crazed movie producer with a beard, our sources had a "close encounter" with another famous director/bearded guy, who said that the script for "Archaeologist Professor with the Hat 4" is almost done. A "witness" to the conversation said that the film’s leading man may have already chosen the woman who will be his love interest. So, who is it? Details won’t be released for another "six days and seven nights," but we know right now. So, what’s "the skinny?" Well, after a few years of raising her adopted Chinese baby, Dan-Sing, she’s decided it’s time to return to Hollywood. But don’t worry, mothers, she’s still very much in love with that "Dan-Sing baby."
