Corporate Man is called in to investigate reports of vile, unethical business practices at Great American Business Company. What he finds there just might destroy him (except we all know the ending to The Tragic Death of Corporate Man so it should be fairly obvious that it can't really destroy him, though it can come close).
Enslaved by the Bonus Whores is an all new Corporate Man Adventure Serial. Chapters will post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Mr. Smith’s vision came back to him, easing from a brilliant yellow-white to the dull antiseptic tones of the hospital.
“Hmmmm. Sparkly,” he said.
“You see that, sir?” the orderly said. “He’s talking.”
“Yes, I hear it, Jimmy. I’m not deaf,” said the important looking man standing next to the orderly.
“Well, what should we do?”
“We? I have to make a phone call,” said the important looking man. He enjoyed injecting his speech with italicized words. It made him feel intellectually superior. “You will do your job. Which I believe involves changing this man’s urine stained clothing. That’s what we pay you for, is it not?”
The orderly sighed. “You know what… I get minimum wage–”
“Which means you’re probably overpaid.”
“Am no longer necessary,” said the important looking man as he turned and walked out of the room.
Jimmy yelled, tossed his name badge into Mr. Smith’s lap, and stormed off. He returned a few moments later, picked up his badge, and wheeled Mr. Smith away.
“Pee pee pants. Pee pee pants!” said Mr. Smith.
“Yeah. I got it. And you can stew in them for all I care.”
