"I really appreciate the job offer. I've been doing this for years. I know it's not exactly the same but I almost made Wheel of Fortune last year and...WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?"

But three recruits have now abandoned the job within a year after the previous hangman was promoted to become a prison guard.

That should be enough right there to tell you how awesome this job would be.

Also, note to self: Funny this later.

What did you bring me to keep me from the Gallows Pole?

Hangman, hangman... hold it a little while... I think I see my friends coming, riding many a mile...

I always thought Gallows Pole would sound great if sung by a woman.

Amusing?

WTF?

They should outsource, hire from abroad. Like the US or something.

Id be surprised if you couldn't find the Wilson sisters doing it on the you tubes....singing Gallows pole, that is.

Do nothing and get paid? Sounds like a sweet job to me.

I would, but I'm terrible with knots. I'm so bad, I flunked out of the Cub Scouts.

What is funny is the guy playign the hangman in Blazing Saddles was also the hangman in Robin Hood Men In Tights

Why not just employ the guys already on death row?  Just let the guy next in line to die, hang the current guy scheduled to die.  Treat it like a last meal and give them one last thrill before it's their turn.

Hook the gallows up to the Internet. They can raffle off the job and make money.
 
2014-03-12 10:10:18 AM
It must be hard for a man in Sri Lanka who just wants to be around other men who are hung.

/Meh, akward. I am too tired to fix the wording.

Not much of that around here.  You'll find quite a few psychopathic would-be murderers.
 
2014-03-12 10:19:55 AM
How hard is it to find intelligent people who enjoy killing? For the right money I could probably find a dozen people willing to do the job by tomorrow. If people keep quitting then they're not paying enough.
 
2014-03-12 10:20:19 AM
If they sign the noose hear it's a big collectors item

It's almost as if the two movies had the same director...

That's not a bad idea you have there. It would also let them know what they have heading their way.

Sounds like the perfect job for a Robot.

How hard can it be? And think of all the fringe benefits. People will buy you drinks and dinner where ever you go.

Ironically, It was at Scouts I learnt how to tie a hangman's noose.   And its probably the only knot and I can tie without thinking.

Can often freak people out at work if I'm absentmindedly tying bits of string into nooses.   I try not to accidentally leave any on co-workers desks.

He probably asked what happens if his performance is sub-par, come evaluation time...they just pointed and he ran.

Not weird when you consider who directed both.

Careful, lest you find yourself accused of a bias crime.

He probably thought he was recruited to sell male enhancement products, he misunderstood the job description as 'making men hung.'

Yes, I'm especially careful around my black colleagues.

// Similarly with the doodling burning crosses.

Did they have some sort of incident at Owl Creek? Is that why they can't keep anyone?
 
2014-03-12 11:33:11 AM
I don't get it.  First, I don't find the Amusing tag appropriate.  Interesting, maybe.

Second, I cannot imagine what the gallows looked like to frighten off the new recruits.  Seriously, there hasn't been a hanging for 40 years.  You already know what hanging is.  What is the big shock?
