Damn you! That's a more cleverer tag line than mine. Goblins steer clear of Satan.

If you haven't got a proper job yet, may I suggest talking to His Frightfulness about a deal? It may be the only way a classically trained person with a penchant for imagination and words can actually fit into the modern world.

You'll love the bit about fame and fortune, but singing Vaughn Williams backwards may hurt a bit for the first few million years.

Ah, Timmy, Timmy, Timmy, what a remarkably wasted talent.

How on earth are we ever going to find a job fitting to your qualifications, skills & penchants?

You COULD have at least TRIED to make it easier!

Can't believe you are spending your days transcribing.

Why is society & business so incapable and so lacking in imaginination as to be able to make proper use of the gifts of those such as yourself. *big sigh*
