Minions
« on: January 20, 2013, 12:52:32 AM »
Saw James's report on today's work on No. 9 (something about "Jason and several minions" and thought everybody would get a chuckle out of the definition of "minion" in the dictionary in my computer:

noun
a follower or underling of a powerful person, esp. a servile or unimportant one.


So if Jason puts somebody to work making a pinion gear, then that person must be a pinion minion. At least that's my oh pinion.

How many bosses does a multi minion have, because I guess that is what I am. Maybe I could be called the Jack of all minions?

Sorry, Wayne, about the pain,

But we’d be most averse to a Wayne-uttered curse,
Cuz ya know that things really could be so much worse.


Like: you’re toilin’ away in the pinion dominion,
When ya suddenly drop a most corpulent trunnion,
Straight down on yer narstily throbbing old bunion,
The size of a full-grown Vidalia onion!
