Who Gets What? A Hypothetical Situation Involving Rappers at Ben Eine’s Art Show

 
Not sure why I am considered one of the preeminent scholars for hypothetical rapper scenarios, but I seem to get paid a decent amount of money to write about what I think rappers would and wouldn’t do within certain hypothetical situations.

So when I was asked to guess which rapper/singer would buy which of these amazing pieces of hand painted typography I found it was a lot harder than I thought. Since the artist didn’t do one that said “YOU DONT GOT THE ANSWERS SWAY” I had to actually use my own brain power to figure out this turnt up typographical conundrum in a timely manner.

The New Standard for Year-end Bonuses

chinese-drinking-bonuses

One boss in China has figured out a new way to determine how much of a year-end bonus each employee will receive. It involves drinking him under the table. An employee of the unnamed company explained that at the beginning of their year-end banquet, the man-in-charge “placed a pile of banknotes on the table before announcing workers would receive bonuses based on how much they could drink.” Now you’d think this would be weird and unfair to lightweights, however the boss explained the reasoning, and it’s more for conditioning than anything else; “much of the company’s business success was rooted in employees being able to hold their liquor with clients.” So, there you go.
