Get a Job!!

Your pancreas is in a job interview and totally bombed the question about ______.

Interviewer:  Good morning, thanks for coming in.
My Pancreas: Hey, thanks for seeing me.
Interviewer: So, let’s get started.  First why don’t you tell me a little bit about your employment history.
My Pancreas:  Yeah, well, for a little over 11 years I worked with  my beta cells . . . . or was it my islets . . . . are they the same thing?  Yeah, whatever, I don’t know, but I made insulin.  Then I decided I was so done with that, so I stopped.
Interviewer:  You stopped? 
My Pancreas:  Yup, just quit.
Interviewer:  Okaaay, and what have you been doing since then.
My Pancreas:  Umm, yeah, I guess nothing.  Well, maybe I’m like a placeholder so the other internal organs don’t shift around and stuff.  Ya know, they might do that if I just wasn’t there, right?
Interviewer:  Ahem, well, why don’t you tell me what you see as your greatest strength?
My Pancreas:  Pfft, I don’t know.  Strength?  I kinda don’t really have one.
Interviewer:  Well, what would you say your greatest weakness is?
My Pancreas:  You know, I just really don’t do anything.  So I don’t have any weaknesses or strengths.  I just kinda hang around.
Interviewer:  (sighing loudly)  Can you tell me why you are interested in this job?
My Pancreas:  (laughing)  Lady, I don’t WANT a job!  I don’t even know how I ended up on this stupid interview.  I’ve been a slacker for almost 33 years, and I don’t see any reason to change things!
Interviewer:  Okay, I think I’ve gotten all of the information I need.  Thanks for your time.  We’ll let you know when we’ve made a decision.

  1. Great post! It's going to be difficult to follow up on this one.

  2. Well, if your pancreas and my pancreas are both up for the job, yours might actually have the edge over mine. Great creativity in this post!

  3. This is awesome. I love it. I'm still laughing!

  4. Excellent! I love this Karen... You got me giggling all over the place now :D
