How do I sign up for fantasy baseball-fan camp? I want to mingle with the greatest Bleacher Bums of Wrigley Field!

Great comic!

Haha! Just to rub it in, here in Sweden everyone gets five weeks paid vacation (unless you waiver overtime pay, then you usually get six). =D

I have to say 'shagging fly balls' does sound comical, especially with what 'shagging' means in the UK! Keep up the great comedy!

1. Sweden sounds even sweeter now.
2. If you mix and match slang, "shagging" (UK) "fly" (old school American) and "balls" (balls)... I'll stop there.

I wonder if he got to take free steriods at the fantasy camp ? He could have had a case of "roid rage" at the drunken heckler calling him "shampooless"

Magnus Falk, but if I am not mistaken, you don't have any paid holiday beyond that, so 25 working days or 5 week against my 22 working days annual leave plus 14 paid holidays (easter, christmas, national shit, regional shit, local shit, some saint, another saint, work day ...) depending how you can arrange that with weekends etc it can be very good, and then the overtime thing, and that is the minimum by law, depending profession you may have more ... well just to rub it back =D (btw, thank you, now I am bit more happy with my work, hehe).

Francesc - where do you live? I'd like to have 22 days of annual leave and 14 paid holidays =p

May 28, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterKendra

Do you work a government job??? How in the hell do you get 14 paid holidays??? I want more holidays. Like the Hambuglers Birthday.

Austria, Italy, Finland, Portugal,Spain ... have more or less that, look this document I got from a quick google ( http://www.cepr.net/documents/publications/working_time_2007_05.pdf ), but, in fairness, in some countries you end earning less from the same job (mine for example), but also we have free public unlimited health care (not a bad service at all). And no, I am not a "public servant" in that case I would have a lot of free time and a not quite demanding "job" for life, hehe. Or a teacher, then I would have three times what I now have in vacation/holidays. Damn, now I lost that bit of happiness I got from the comparing with worst scenarios!.

I wouldn't mind at all to have settled to work elsewhere (mullet boss or not), with better opportunities, earning quite more, and returning just for vacation and eat, or to eat and then vacation ... whatever :).
Btw, my namesake :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cesc_Fabregas

You guys do realize that he already submitted this commic sometime last year.

copyright 2007, actually... but who cares? BRILLIANCE!

I thought that, I was getting all Déjà vu-y and things.
It's nice to know I'm not (that) crazy, or that my life is one gigantic groundhog day type scenario.

The comic, however, is still great even though it's reappearance did make me think I was losing it.
