Is Comic Geek the new cool?
Now equal THIS?:
First, there's THIS from MSN Careers. (Thanks to the three readers who sent me this!) According to a poll among males as to what their idea of the coolest job is, "COMIC BOOK GURU" came in fourth! HA! Don't get me wrong, it is the coolest job ever, but that's because I AM A GEEK!
And then yesterday, I get the following blanket email from someone at ABC Television:
WIFE SWAP IS LOOKING FOR COMIC BOOK LOVERS!!!
Are you or your family comic book junkies? Do you go to comic conventions as a family? Maybe you own a store or have a huge comic book collection? If so, you could be on Wife Swap. Families featured on the show will receive a $20,000 honorarium. If you refer a family that is selected you will receive $1,000.
Wife Swap is a fascinating story of what happens when two couples see themselves and their partners in a whole new light. The New York Post says, "It should be called 'Life Swap' because it's not just the wives who learn something here. It's the families."
Potential families must live in the continental United States, but we ask that families who apply consist of two parents that have at least one child, over the age of 5 and under the age of 18, living at home full-time. To submit for the show please call 212-404-1470 or email (preferred method) a family photo and description to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a family unit (two parents with children) looking for a great learning experience, I would love to hear from you today!
I am also attaching a flyer. Feel free to post it if you would like.

Anyway, if anyone is interested, go right ahead and contact her... we're thinking of entering Manager Ken so he can FINALLY get his fifteen minutes of fame.
Comic Book Geek = The New COOL for the New Milllenium!
Sounds good to me.
