JEFBOT.54_The Secret Weaponon June 25, 2008 at 12:06 am
Yep, unfortunately, this strip is all too true: when asked why they weren’t sending me out more, an agent really answered me by saying I was their “Secret Weapon.” I don’t remember my exact response, probably because I was so confused, but I think I managed to respond with something like, “But I don’t want to be a secret.”
Dude, I just want you to know that I read this strip every week and I always laugh and love you a little bit more with each one.
It’s almost too funny to be true, but I’m a believer! Your truth is funnier than fiction! 🙂
you’re my secret too!
thats the ugliest woman I’ve ever seen.
“reweese the sequet weaponnnnn!”
OMG! So upsetting… But very funny at the same time! Awesome job Jefbot!!! P. S. LOVE your agents face!!!!
I have had almost this exact conversation with my agent (and I use that term loosely). I’m still laughing at this strip!!! Good one 🙂
chelsea, i’m SO glad you’re reading the strip and am SO happy to have a friend like you. let’s get together for some laughs and love in person, soon!
janonymous, yes – sad but true. i’m glad i found a good use for these stories though. it makes having these experiences kinda worth it!
anonymous1, hmm. yes, apparently the secret’s even a secret from me, since i’m not sure what you’re talking about!
akira, heheh. yeah, that second panel went a little more disturbing than planned.
funnyshaffer, thanks! ha! maybe maybe her face isn’t so bad afterall!!!
lacybaby, well it’s good to know i’m not alone and not the only “secret weapon”! i wonder if we had the same agent?
Really good, JEFbot! I like that you’re a secret weapon. I don’t think the Japanese have had a secret weapon since World War II.
Oh man…is that kind of like “you’re so cold that you’re actually hot?” I’m sure they’re just “building the buzz” for you…on the grassroots level.
I’m with Akira…. reweese the secret weapon in 3, 2, 1…. I don’t know, maybe creativity points for originality under pressure? hmmm… perhaps they’ve used that line before?
Man, agents are an interesting breed!
Thats kind of a way of saying ‘we don;t promote you at all, but we like your money’, isn’t it.
michael cornacchia, thanks! and actually, i think their last secret weapons were pokémon and yu-gi-oh.
john, maybe i should’ve stuck around longer to find out. heheh.
the heat, ha! yeah, i guess they get creativity points for providing the subject matter for this strip. 🙂
prof. tinker, well, if i don’t get paid, they don’t get paid, so you’d think they would’ve been trying to get me out! thanks for the comment.
Scary… that I think I’ve heard that line before.
Wow, this made me glad I have zero acting talent. Hope you’ve got a real agent now.
choicecomics.net, that is scary.
jeremy, um, working on it.
The ‘Sch’ in Schuetze is Not Silent!
akira: “reweese the sequet weaponnnnn!”
Wow! An “An American Tail” reference! I’m liking your family more and more…
