Hi Grumpystiltskyn,
 
Anodyne, LLC has an opening for a Lab Operations Associate in their Milwaukee, WI location. We thought you might be interested in this opportunity. To explore this further you'll find more details and the application instructions on the job details page below.
 
Lab Operations Associate at Anodyne, LLC

 

Have a great day.

 

Houston | New York | Los Angeles | Seattle | Atlanta
2450 Louisiana St. Suite 400-437, Houston, TX 77006

=================================

My polite response:

 

Thanks ever so much for the opportunity.
However, I am currently making a fairly comfortable wage while picking outside the gourmet liquor store in Cedarburg.
I sit in the sunshine, pick whichever tunes I feel like, chat with the passers-by, and generally enjoy myself.
Sure beats the [excrement] out of working indoors and paying attention to Rules and Details.
Sincerely,
MIKE of Grumpystiltskyn fame
=========================
As to the "KIMBLE group:
Didn't Dr. Kimble kill his wife, and try blame it on a one-armed man??
I don't want ANY job where an accused murderer recommends me as an ideal candidate, unless it's a concert at a prison!

You missed the obvious response.

Dear Kimble Group.

Thank you for email. I would be happy to supply Squared Eel banjos to all your lab technicians and not just the lab operations associate in Milwaukee. Thank you for this opportunity. I look forward to receiving the order as soon as possible.

Being Dick was a Cockney Van Dyke this is all I found ....

MY OLD DUTCH

 

: : : : : : With regards to your meaning of MY OLD DUTCH, it DOES rhyme and IS cockney rhyming slang as it comes from Duchess of Fife, not just duchess!!!!!!

and ......

"It's really should be ‘Duch’ not 'Dutch', but that is how its spelt

Duch is from 'Duchess of Fife', rhyming slang for for wife. It's most popular from a song from the 1800s with the line something like

“There ain't a lady in the whole wide world, that I'd swap for my dear old duch'"

I lived in the East end of London for a couple of years, (real cockney territory) and never heard anybody talk in rhyming slang except a guy from Manchester who used it all the time, "go figure !" see, I can talk USA too !

there used to be a character in the chip n dale cartoons who spoke cockney too ! its great hearing American actors saying "gor blimey blokes, luv a duck !" the best English accent I ever heard from an American actor was Jack Lemmon in "Irma La Douche" but then he was brilliant at everything he did methinks .

The opening is for a lab operations associate. The use of dumb animals in lab testing is becoming frowned upon. Nobody has contested the use of a freelance pluckmeister who once worked as a health inspector. Perhaps they may also need someone to help them work around the local health regulations. What could go wrong with that golden opportunity ?

If I had a choice between being used as a lab animal, or being as SILLY as Roger Moore was, trying to out-suave Sean Connery AS IF James Bond in

"The Man With The Golden Opportunity",

I might actually  chose vivisection.

Partly because most of the real Cockneys moved out to Essex yonks ago. You'd more likely hear rhyming slang in Romford or Southend. And partly because the commoner rhyming slang terms are so embedded that most people have forgotten that they are rhyming slang; Scarper, Berk, Butchers, Bottle....
