Behold the great Gerald.
I am an explorer extraordinaire. I uncovered the truth of hauntings and Loch Ness.
I put the U.F.Os to rest. I discovered ruins beneath the sea, there is nothing that can
hide from me.
The one elusive job. It is an old wives tale, this job. No one has ever seen it and I
have scoured the earth to find it. Alas it was to no avail, yet I will net concede. I
will prove that jobs exist!
I shall swim, the swimming arches, I shall leap, the leaping smog clouds, I shall dodge
the homeless traffic and strap donuts to my back. I shall excavate the toxic waste fields
until leprosy becomes me. I will find a job!!!!
...Oh who am I kidding?
