I don't blame you. A TukTuk is a 3-wheeled golf cart in India. How much customer support can you get from a mobile phone answered by a guy driving a taxi? wink

Though it's not been publicized... (OKC)

Though it's not been publicized an inside source informed me that Griffin Communications has laid off or fired 21 people at their local CBS-affiliate television station KWTV 9 in the last few months.

ABC affiliate, KOCO-TV (Hearst Television), has been cutting their already under-paid staff's hours.

Deserves to be tacked on to the "Daily Layoff Thread"

Thought this was hilarious: 

From Minyanville:

DailyFeed

All Mork Encino is asking for is “a better opportunity than getting shot in the face.”

That's what the 28-year-old down-on-his-luck man told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution when asked about his website, huntme4sport.com, where he offers himself up to sportsmen as human prey for $10,000 (or $12,000, if you want him naked).

As “give-me-a-job” publicity stunts go, Encino's is cheaper than buying a billboard, like Ireland's “Jobless Paddy.” Taken at face value, though, it's also much more illegal than posting handbills around town, which earned one English man both a job and a 75 pound fine this month.

On his website, Encino, a self-styled hillbilly, touts his “certain kind of kinship to the land,” his foot speed and smarts (comparable to a “wild turkey” and a “wild boar,” respectively) as the qualities that make him challenging quarry. He also offers photos of himself in the wild, cleverly camouflaged, like this one:
