That’s right. The colloquy has begun in earnest. Thousands and thousands of you (however many it takes to assemble millions and millions of page views) have gathered to begin a crucial discourse on what just might be the most important question of our time.

Okay, maybe it’s not. But there is something about the entire question that engages, delights and torments people in all walks of life. That’s pretty clear. Many of you have already written in about your jobs, and we’re getting ready to publish a nice selection in the days to come. I will also be thinking out loud on the subject and answering any questions that you might have. I’ve been a bulls**tter all my life, and I think I have a lot to bring to the table on this issue. I know there are many of you out there who are equally practiced and seasoned, not to say steeped, in the subject.

I thought, before I move on to other things today, that I would just make a salient point that is in no way bulls**t at all, and that is this: Just because you’ve read the 50 BS Jobs on this site, and thought about your own, and even written in about the material in question, DOES NOT REPLACE THE ACTUAL EXPERIENCE OF PURCHASING THE BOOK ITSELF. That’s right. Even if you choose not to use the link I’ve just provided, the button is conveniently close to you right now, right on this very site, and you could get the job done with just a click of your mouse. Why not do that right this very minute?

The book is chock-a-block with great info, extended discussion, a plethora of examples, and a welter of strategies on how you too can acheive the pinnacle of success in our culture and get a high-paying, high-prestige, low-activity BS job of your very own.

Go ahead! Make my day!
