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 two)

Ever since the announcement of the short story Enslaved by the Bonus Whores: A Corporate Man Adventure, Alaskans everywhere can be heard shouting, “Bring on the Whores!” or “Give us the Whores!” or just “Whores! Whores! Whores!”  Some Alaskans, eager to purchase new Corporate Man material, have taken to uttering the phrase, “Hey baby, how much?” on street corners.  Sometimes there’s even a bookstore nearby. 

Anyway, it’s a phenomenon.  It’s crazy. 

We here at the Corporate Man Blog, in our triumphant return to serialized publication of economic superhero antics, are honoring those frenzied Alaskans with a three part Satisfied Customer update.  In Part One we met this woman.

We dubbed her Mama Alaska and chronicled her chance encounter with The Tragic Death of Corporate Man text and the subsequent benefits it wrought including wealth, loss of spouse, and whisper calm canines.  In Part Two we will examine the wild-fire spread of the Corporate Man brand across the pristine wilderness of the Alaskan peninsula.

When we left our heroine she was rich beyond imagining, but desperately starved for human companionship.  Remember, this is in Alaska where you can travel around for six or seven years and never see another person.  It’s that big and that desolate. 

She decided that what she needed were business comrades. So she distributed copies of The Tragic Death of Corporate Man around the region.  It is unclear how she did this. Either she chucked copies out the window of a float plane and simply let the winds of fate decide what happened or she made arduous treks to various ranger stations marked out on maps and littered those sites with the manuscript.  Both are viable.  We, however, lean toward the ranger station scenario because of the following, photographic evidence.

Not quite the-smoking-gun concrete variety of proof, but still fairly compelling evidence. We were also provided with extensive ranger station documentation of sudden book appearances at various locales throughout the state.

There was an alternate “tied books to game animals thus distributing them to the Alaskan citizenry via hunting” culture hypothesis put forth by this man.

He is Alaskan literary historian and craftsman jardinière, a man whom we shall call Bubba Alaska.  He also seems to be the sole owner of a mysterious glowing edition of The Tragic Death of Corporate Man.  Unfortunately, we were unable to obtain Bubba Alaska’s supposed evidence of game animal distribution as he was forced to cut our interview short because of some urgent reading he had to do.

Join us next time for Part Three of this very special Alaskan Edition of Satisfied Customers in which we will examine the rampant commercialization of the Corporate Man brand throughout the loveable 49th State of our capitalist union.
