What prompted this email?

Knowing a picture is worth a thousand words, I sometimes only send images in my email.

To editors who have completely lost all their senses rejected a project:





To people I am reminding (again!) about something past due:




My auto-responder when I'm "working from home"




Today, it was this particular image.  Can you guess what I heard about that prompted this reply?








Answer: it was finding out I was too late to get tickets for THIS.

A giant green space shark ate the Sun?

Draven Ames said...

You signed a really big client?

adelaida said...

Grin is imperial. You will revise!

BuffySquirrel said...

Isn't that from a cheap shark killing game? I'm guessing Ms Shark's car got bumped.

Judith Gonda said...

You just deleted slush pile "accidentally."

Travis Erwin said...

The shark is green a color synonymous with envy so Is say you read a great book by a new author that you wish you'd signed first.

Peter D. Shapiro said...

Probably something about the 9-9-9 plan.

He doesn't look happy. I'm guessing someone said no to you about something and you didn't like it, although you may have been expecting it.

This looks like... a book project that a bitter rival passed on (the fools!) has just hit the best seller lists thanks to The Shark's hard work and tenacity, and you now have the opportunity to rub it in their faces?

This looks like a shark who's about to enjoy some delicious revenge.

The shark smells blood and is about to strike.

Uh,oh... someone said something stupid, didn't they.

thewritinghouse said...

Some delightful writer told your sharkiness to go shove your revision notes?

Marty said...

The green shark is money baby… someones book is going to be made into a movie.

Rochelle said...

Your Blackberry still isn't working.

Gladspooky said...

Hmm. Green. You have a friend and you're not sure whether their baby will be a boy or a girl!

LupLun said...

Wait, better guess: Client's book made finalist for the National Book Awards?

Manon Eileen said...

"I will eat you up, asshole" ? (the red star-like thing closely resembles it :p)

Angie said...

Someone emailed you to say that Amazon.fr is finally launching the Kindle in France, today at 99 euro. The shark grinned toothy.

Someone emailed to tell you there's fresh Danish pastries in the office? That's you homing in on a doughnut...

Michael Seese said...

I'm with Travis.

Wall Streeters were being kicked out...which this morning was canceled, the kick-out not the demonstration.

wry wryter said...

I just had to reply again because the word verification was 'palin'

Not that I'm a fan. Now I have to actually peck those letters.

Sheila JG said...

Hmm, the green shark looks angry - was it another query for a fictional novel?

Steve Forti said...

I'm going to say that it's because we're rapidly approaching 2015, and we're nowhere near on track for 'Jaws 19' as predicted by 'Back to the Future 2'.

TC Avey said...

Fun, thanks, I needed the laugh!

Damn this dog team!... I'll never get to Boston in time for 'The Wire Forever'... but what's a B-More Dude to do?
