Fanswag Weekly: Dishwashin' Samurai tees [update]

Update: This giveaway is now closed and the winners have been notified. Check your inbox and your junk email inbox to see if you've won! Good luck ...

The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai's creator James Silva was just a special guest host on this week's Fancast and what a fine job he did. And to commemorate Silva's A+ rated Fancast appearance he sent us a few black and sexy The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai T-shirts to giveaway. So, that's what we're doing, giving them away to you, our fellow fanboys. To win, just make a comment on this post (once a day through Friday) telling us about some of your worst job experiences. We know washing dishes isn't the most glamorous job and is pretty horrible in its own right, but we know you can one-up our samurai friend with your own job horror stories. Contest specifics are below.
  • Leave a comment on this post telling us about some of the worst job experiences you've had. You can leave one comment per calendar day (eastern time).
  • Be sure you only leave one comment per day. Posters of multiple comments during the same day will be disqualified. We'll accept entries until Friday, November 30th at 12:00PM Noon, eastern time. You must be at least 18 years old to enter and this giveaway is open to U.S. residents only.
  • On Friday, we'll pick three winners via a randomly random drawing
  • Three individual winners will receive a super neato The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai T-shirt (totaling three T-shirts) valued at $10 in each.
And if those rules aren't official enough for you, check out the official-offical rules right here. We think we speak for fanboys everywhere in saying thanks James for taking the time to guest host the Fancast and thanks for the free swag. T-shirts make everyone happy, especially one's featuring dead samurais.

Working at the VA hospital up in North Dakota. I was pulling staples out of old documents and re-stapling them. It was easy money, but talk about BORING!!

All I'm gonna say is that turkey poop is the worst kind. It's really difficult to shovel because it's neither solid nor liquid. It smells worse that pig poop and horse poop and every other poop smell I can recall...except for my roommate's. It sucks shoveling turkey poop in the middle of a hot summer day in a pen the size of a hobbit's house. That's right. I said hobbit.

I had this one experience that was absolutely horrific.

I work in the Seafood Department at my local supermarket chain and on New Years Eve I was asked to shuck clams for a woman.

So I started shucking them and midway through, I felt a painful sensation in my finger. I looked down and saw that a piece of the clam broke off and imbedded itself into my finger. I immediately stopped what I was doing, removed the shell piece, and bandaged myself. I continued the task and thought little about what had just taken place.


Few days later, I notice that the wound isn't healing so I take a look at it. I squeeze and squeeze until a half-inch piece of clamshell slides out of the cut.

Yeah. It was horrible.

Washing dishes, done it.
Digging drainage ditches, done it.
But the real ball buster was pouring concrete. You feel like you're going to die every day.

Worked in a locker room at a country club shining shoes and vacuuming and other assorted BS. I definitely slacked off though, which was kind of the point I guess.
