A Man Dreams About Having This Much Number 2 In His Chosen Walk Of Life

(There's a little swearing in there near the end)



Back when I made glass eyes for Merry-Go-Round horses, I used to dream of being able to quit and start an artisanal pencil sharpening business.

Hey; maybe that means I can sue this guy.

That would be post number one (1) in the forthcoming internet sensation, "The Borderline Catatonic Book for Boyz"

At least he doesn't cut about the many types of point. And he sticks with one pencil. You have to enjoy the narrow approach he uses.

I can see how political cartooning has dried up, too. Not. Funny. Anymore.

He gets my best wishes, except not my business. I already do the task myself.

I admire very much David Rees' adventurism and originality he brings to this new career. Myself, I am a freelance gynecologist, but I cannot boast having already 400 customers like David has attained. I know that their are others in my profession much more successful than I am. But I don't fly off the handle like Dave when he ponders those pencil sharpeners out there doing a better job than he can. I'm simply happy to get the work I can get. Most of the time my work, and I imagine Dave's, is very relaxing and satisfying.

I am a freelance pillow, couch, and mattress tester, and can boast a near-lifetime of experience in these realms at master-level. But i will not profane my skills by exchanging them for filthy lucre. I'm a purist that way

Well I must say that's......meta.

The best part are the credits. Imagine the meetings.

All I can say is that if one works hard, believes in themselves and becomes expert at a given task, they will be successful.

Me? I became a professional Lawn Trimming Specialist ten years ago. I trim lawns using a scissors and cut one blade at a time.

My leg hurts from being pulled so much.

As soon as the International Association of Graphite Sharpening Engineers gets wind of this there will be trouble.

He is as funny as he is lively.
