Work is Hell
Matt Groening
Pantheon Books
48 pp., paperback
$5.95
Up and at 'em! If you're nervous
just thinking about leaving
R college and getting a "real job",
just wait until you read how awful
it really is in Matt Groening's
side-splitting view of the working
world, called....you guessed
it...Work is Hell.
Binky and his "grotesque ears"
are back, garbed in gaberdine
and ready to build that
meaningful career. He de-
monstrates all kinds of helpful
lessons, and answers those
haunting questions. (What do I
want to be if I grow up? What if I
make the wrong career choice?
When is my coffee break?) He
tells us the secret of success (1. Get
a job. 2. Get a better job. 3. Get an
even better job. Repeat if

necessary.), introduces us to the
nine types of bosses, provides a
checklist questionnaire ("Just
how bad is your job?"), and, if you
happen to be stuck with "The
Psychotic Boss: Monster from
Hell," gives you helpful hints on
how to "How to Tell Everyone Off,
Go into Business for Yourself, Be
Completely Fufilled, and Starve to
C+4APTEF 3 :
THE 9 TYPE

Death."
As usual, Groening hasn't been
able to resist lambasting every
silly thing he notices, so in
addition to his revelations about
work, you can also read "Sullen
Teen Magazine," "So You Want
To Be An Unrecognized Genius,"
and what must certainly be the
last word on the subject, "Last
Minute Gift Suggestions Under
$5."
Groening, one of the nation's
hottest new talents, is featured
weekly in the Metro Times, and

appears in 40 newspapers
regularly. His last book, Love is
Hell, has to this date sold a "very
good" 40,000 copies, according to
Michael Barson, publicity
manager for Pantheon Books.
Groening's success is due to his
uncanny ability to bull's-eye into
the crux of every situation that
ever bothered anyone. Work is
Hell displays this better than
ever. Buy it. Love it. At least, put
it on your coffee table.

Introducing BASICALC."The new
Texas Instruments prgaHmble calculator.

Now there's a programmable scien-
tific calculator that solves even the
most complex math, engineering
and science problems in a BASIC
way. The TI-74 BASICALC.
Unlike most other programmable
calculators that require you to learn
a new, complicated system of key-
trolce commands-in effect. a new

has more calculating power than
comparably-priced programmables.

Your basic specs:
" Operates as a calculator or
BASIC computer
8K RAM expandable to 16K
RAM
*70 built-in scientific functions

And a variety of options, like soft-
ware cartridges, are available that
make it even more powerful and
convenient.
Stop by and see the TI-74
BASICALC for yourself. In basic
terms, what it really offers you is
a bargain.
