Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Charley the Australopithecine in "On The Job Hunt" Networking Session Man: Hey, what do you do? Charley: "Do"? I do eat cheese cubes. Man: Heh. I hear ya. How long since you worked? Charley: Um...it's been 3.5 million years. Man: Yeah, it's been a while. What's your skill set? Charley: You know, hunting, gathering. Charley: I dabbled in making sharp rocks, but I found I didn't have the cranial capacity. Man: Man, you've got to update your skills for today's marketplace! Charley: Why? I'm a member of an extinct species from the Pliocene epoch. Man: I know the feeling. That the job market, the economy, the government... Everything's moved on from you. Charley: Oh, it's not so bad. I keep a stash of beef jerky in my leaf-nest in a tree in the park. Man: Wait. You have beef jerky? Woman: And a leaf-nest? Man: #2: Are you hiring? Man: You want me to chase that squirrel, sir? Man #2: Shall I hold the stick higher? Charley: This soft labor market is great for business!
