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.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS*
What's this BONUS WHORES business? I thought Corporate Man died.
Where do I start reading?
Enslaved by the Bonus Whores: a Corporate Man Adventure Serial takes place before the events in The Tragic Death of Corporate Man: a hero for capitalism; champion of the working class. The timeline is vague. Probably early 1990s. Possibly even 1990.
The story is presented in chronological form in the “Section” subheadings beneath the main title plate. If you are new here, click Section 1 to start at the beginning. I do recommend, however, that you read the Memo from CM first as if contains a memo from Corporate Man himself.
How often do you update?
We don’t anymore. Not really. You missed all that. The only new items you’ll see anymore are the Satisfied Customer posts and any item specifically Corporate Man related such as movie news (which superstar is currently vying for the lead role, who has been tapped as the director this week, etc), audio book information (is it going to happen?), comic book possibilities, cartoons, and merchandise.
How Can I become a Satisfied Customer?
It’s easy. Buy a copy of one or both of the Corporate Man books (see the links below). Then read the book. You should be well and truly satisfied. Oh, and take a picture of yourself with the book, send it to me in an e-mail (see the link below), and I’ll post it on the blog. Be creative.
How can I receive alerts of new posts?
Easy. Enter your e-mail address into the bar directly below the “Follow by Email” heading which is directly below the Corporate Man commercials. You should also watch the Corporate Man commercials.
Am I seeing typos?
Probably. There are rumors that, hidden within the text, are business secrets that men would kill for. Women? Not so much. Anyway, to decode these secrets one only needs to catalog any typos, grammatical errors, punctuation flaws, and the like. So far only two people have figured it out.
What if I don’t like reading from a computer screen?
Well, you might want to get in time machine and head back to the 1989 when the foreseeable future was safe for your kind. Or you could join us in the 21st century and accept electronically presented reading material as fact. I doubt you print out all of your e-mails and I know you read those all the time. The Corporate Man chapters tend to be the length of a well composed e-mail so it all works out. Still not convinced? Well… Do you text? Shut up, you do to. The amount of texts you read in one day probably exceeds a standard Corporate Man post. And if you are still being obstinate then kill a tree, print the posts, put them in a cute little folder, sneak into the bathroom between your scheduled breaks like you always do, and read them on the throne.

How do I make a financial contribution to the author?
Send me an e-mail and we’ll work something out.
Or I guess you could buy book copies from the above links.
Do you have any stock tips for me?
Yes. Don’t buy stocks. You are far too smart to fall for that “buy low sell high” b.s. the Wall Street crooks are peddling. Investing in antiquated technologies like 8-track players, beepers, and calculators is the way to go.
How could you do that to FDR?
Hey, he knew the risks when he got involved in this story.
What if I want to send you message of praise or just make a stupid comment?
Shoot me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Remember: There are no stupid comments. At least, that’s the philosophy under which this story was written.
Do I need a background in economics to understand this story?
I didn’t need one to write it so it would surprise me very much if you needed one to read it. A bachelors in superheroics is a must though.
Who did the music for the commercials?
A very talented musician who goes by the name of JK2. Here’s a link where you can find more: http://jk2music.bandcamp.com/
Who is that sexy beast posing as Corporate Man?
That would be Sir Ian Clark. Look for him at Old Chicago. He loves it when women approach him offering alcoholic beverages. He just as graciously accepts said beverages from men as well.
Is there a Corporate Man Fan Club?
No. This a corporate enterprise not a schoolyard fantasy. If you’d like to interview for a position as a Corporate Man Colleague then submit your resume via the e-mail address listed above.
