Minion Mike B. (who's bucking for promotion to henchman) turned me on to this Penny Arcade cartoon. Looks like they're interested in MY lair.
It has also brought up issues that must be dealt with, such as deep crows and stalagmen. But that's the great thing about minions. Upon my command, loyal minions will take up arms against such threats to my dominance of my own lair. And those minions who won't rush in to do battle with deep crows and stalagmen for me... well, I guess it's best we found out about your committment issues now.
On a more positive note... My play for this lair has recently been endorsed by the International Conspiracy Of Evil Clowns. They're not putting up any cash, but when you have the moral support of evil clowns, can the support of the International Confederation of Ethically Challenged Mimes be far behind?
P.S.: Thanks to Minion Amy who donated $10. That brings our grand total of donations to... $10.

How evil am I?
I'm not evil enough to do things like kick puppies or take candy from babies. But when it comes to blasphemy and heresy... I've been told by many people of many religions that I am destined for quite the painful afterlife.
Case in point... this bit of humorous heresy. If your faith is a sensitive subject, do not click that link.
I had a piece of clip art that I own (hired someone to draw it for my free clip art and drawing tool site) where Jesus has his hand over his heart. I thought someone might do a "You Are Here" kind of sweet religious thing (if you don't get it... you're in Jesus's heart). I'm not a Christian, but I am a marketer and I thought this particular drawing would appeal to people, so I had it made.
Still, when I looked at it, sometimes that hand over his heart looked like it might swing out and backhand someone, and in my mind, I started calling it the "Bitchslap Jesus". So while working on some t-shirt designs today, I got tired of the cuteness of the ninja kittens and the alien family vacation photo and decided to do something with "Bitchslap Jesus" and this was the result.
I understand some of you will find this offensive, but remember... I've been told I'm going to hell by better condemners than you. I think it's funny and I'd love to send one to Kathy Griffin.

So it's been a week give or take. The grand total in donations... drumroll please...
**Bupkis**Yup. Not a single dollar.
Am I angry? Well, if I'm not going to get enough to buy my lair, it's probably best I don't get anything at all. I mean, it's better to get bupkis than have 20 people asking me what I'm going to do with the dollar they sent me, now that I came up $4,999,980 short. That would just be humiliating.
At least with no donations I can hold my head high and protest about how the world doesn't understand me, they don't appreciate my genius, and if they won't pay with their money now, they'll pay with their lives later!!! Muahahaha... or something like that. You get the righteously indignant drift... and it's implied that the paying with their lives will begin once I've bought the lair myself and built a giant death ray.
So it's better that no one's donated. That way I get to be really indignant and harbor a desire to make the whole world pay. Plus, do you know how much of a pain in the ass it would be to destroy the entire state of Utah, except for the house of some guy named Tim who donated five bucks? For $5 I'd have to spend hours programming in a pattern of destruction that skipped Tim's house, but left the entire rest of the state massacred? I mean, come on.
With no donations, it's just that much less work... and Utah Tim is toast.

Recently someone asked if a donation qualifies them to be a minion.
Anyone who donates is an automatic honorary minion. To reach henchman level, once the lair is purchased, you'll actually have to come out to the lair and help work on the remodel.
So, becoming an official henchman (or henchwoman), will require a trip out to the lair and putting in at least one weekend of physical labor.
But you can become an honorary evil minion for a donation of as little as $1. If you donate more than $10, I'll e-mail you a certificate.
