LAID OFF LUCKY PIERRE
I've had the pleasure of playing Lucky Pierre once in my life, for Falcon's unemployment epic "Laid Off". Given my current financial crisis, it seems prudent to reflect on the momentary joissance familiar to most mid-level managers and average working shmos everywhere, that indescribable feeling of getting dicked from the top at the same time you fuck over the person beneath you. Fortunately enough in my line of work, any "subordinate" I come across normally enjoys the treatment.
Favored BSD artist Jef Kolman did well to lighten this metaphorical load, transforming a still from Laid Off à la Eyes Wide Shut into something a bit more comical. Work ethic is everything and Jef shared with me his new mantra, a quote from Tom of Finland he discovered at the Museum of Sex in NYC: "If I don't have an erection when I'm doing a drawing, I know it's no good." True dat. Goes for porn too.
