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.

After nearly a decade of imprisonment, Corporate Man returns to find the economy in ruins and his deadliest enemies in control of all but a fraction of society's wealth. He embarks upon a quest to set right the wrongs of the business world; a task that will ultimately destroy him.

Satisfied Customers 19: The Super Special Alaskan Trilogy! (part one)

Alaska has gone crazy for Corporate Man.  Seriously.  I cannot stress enough how insane they have become for the economic adventures of our beloved business man icon.  There are actual proposals on the governor’s desk, at this moment, requesting that Corporate Man be made the official state bird, the state flower, even the state flag.  The state drink will always remain beer, but residents are requesting that all beer labels feature an image of Corporate Man.  Juneau is being renamed Don Jones, City Hall will become The Office, and Alaska might well become The Alaskan Chapter of the Junior Corporate Men of America. 

And it all started with this.

This woman (let’s call her Mama Alaska), one pleasant rainy day, happened upon a copy of The Tragic Death of Corporate Man.  With nothing better to do, she read it, found herself fiscally amused, and full of brilliant business ideas.  That evening she shared the book with her husband.  Or maybe it was her brother.  Or both.  Anyway, it completely blew his mind.

They had a meeting.  She outlined extensive money making schemes and various investment strategies.  Her proposal lasted for seventeen hours.  She then turned the floor over to him. He had but one idea.

Smoke bombs. 

Mama Alaska was unimpressed. 

For the next few weeks they worked separately to realize their visions.  At the end of this time Mama Alaska was a billionaire widow.  His smoke bomb idea proved somewhat fatal.  Rich but lonely she adopted several canine companions.  These, however,  proved less than ideal as business partners.  It seems the vicious fiscal logic of the Corporate Man text cowed them into a submissive state.  Not ideal for the cutthroat world of finance.  Turning lemons into lemonade she recognized the opportunity and sold copies of the Corporate Man book as doggie sedatives and made her fortune.

Please join us next time for Part Two of this three part Alaskan edition of Satisfied Customers in which we will explore the dissemination of The Tragic Death of Corporate Man into the Alaskan landscape.
