What Does Mommy Do For Money?

Hey!  How about a contest.  I have nothing to offer other than bragging rights, but this was too fun to pass up when I saw it.  A little girl drew a picture of mommy at work for school.  What is mommy doing?

I'll post the answer and winner (if there is one) later today.  Okay tomorrow.  Keep guessing.

Come on.  Everybody.

Let me guess....maybe she churns butter for a living? No, I think maybe she's...oh, i going to go out on a limb here...Pole Dance??? Just a guess.

Also,I think you write some "Honest Scrap" and I've given you an award on my blog: A Squirrel Amongst Lions.

Oh my! An award? For lil 'ol me. I'm blushing. Thank you. Thank you very much.

Now climb down from that branch and keep guessing.

I think it's pretty clear that the mommy is a union organizer and she's pulling a Sally Field-style Union NOW move, and all her coworkers are rushing to support her with signed petitions for better work conditions.

The mommy is cautious, of course. She clings to the pole while she determines if ALL the coworkers have good intentions or if some are moles working for The Man, bent on destroying her unionizing efforts. After all, as the mommy well knows, The Man is heartily against unionizing and has made several comments in the past that any woman in the sweatshop (because it is one, where they work) who thinks about unionizing is automatically a whore and a slut and he will see to it that her life is miserable, with low pay, mandatory furloughs, and being first on the list for redundancies. These comments were all made while he chewed on a fat cigar, tobacco spilling out the end of it and juice dripping on his stained shoes. Well, the juice hits his shoes when it misses his considerable belly, which is big enough to rival the full term pregnancies of some of the workers (who definitely were NOT shown any slack!).

So the little girl who drew this is so very proud of her Stick-It-To-The-Man mommy, and she hopes she has a FRACTION of her steel will when she grows up. God willing, she won't have to work in such conditions where secret unionizing is the only alternative. Hopefully the world will have changed by then, and she'll be piloting a spaceship instead and chopping off alien heads as alien craft hurtles towards her fleet from every corner of the galaxy.

This is so obvious I can't believe you didn't see this from the get go.

I know! I know! His mom is Miley Cyrus! Sorry. That's really bad. I actually like Miley and I am appalled at my own joke.

I received an e-mail with this picture! I don't want to spoil it for anyone else, but if I remember correctly, there are shovels involved:)
