YOU GOTTA DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO
You knew what you signed up for when you took this job as a [database administrator / cyber security analyst / delivery boy]. After all, they implanted that career chip at orientation. So don’t act all surprised now that they don’t want your opinion. If they’d wanted your opinion, they would have taken it along with your bank routing number and DNA sample when you signed your employment paperwork. Just for safekeeping, of course.
This black tee is perfect for casual Fridays around the office. Propaganda style, with Leela, Bender, and Fry gazing skyward, it declares, “You’re not paid to think / A mindless worker is a happy worker! Shut up and do your job!” And if you’re purchasing this during work hours from a work computer? Bravo. You can only score higher if you attempt to expense it.
On a dark, haunted night, a Russian oligarch dares a circle of international chefs to play the samurai game of 100 Candles--where each storyteller spins a terrifying tale of ghosts, demons and unspeakable beings--and prays to survive the challenge.
Inspired by the Japanese Edo period game of Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai, Hungry Ghosts reimagines the classic stories of yokai, yorei, and obake, all tainted with the common thread of food.
First course: With bad consequence, a ramen chef refuses to help a beggar, and a band of pirates get more (and less) than they were bargaining for after their encounter with a drowning woman turns ghastly.
Hungry Ghosts is cooked up by the infamous author and chef, Anthony Bourdain (Kitchen Confidential, Emmy-Award winning TV star of Parts Unknown) and acclaimed novelist Joel Rose (Kill, Kill, Faster, Faster, back again from their New York Times #1 best seller, Get Jiro!). Joining them this issue are stellar artists Alberto Ponticelli and Vanesa Del Rey, with amazing color by Jose Villarrubia, and a drop-dead cover by Paul Pope
