    Dude, you're getting two job offers from Knave magazine ... what are you waiting for?

    Gary

    PS- Don't forget to collect your monies from the Nigerian Prince too.

    PPS- If you got the time answer them just to see where it goes, and/or Google Knave magazine and poke around there looking for Brad and Hugo.
