I'm sorry your query hasn't been critiqued yet even though it's been at the top of the queue for a week, but your fellow minions have been lazy slackers lately when it comes to submitting Guess-the-Plots.
I'm sorry your opening has gotten no attention, but your fellow minions haven't come up with a continuation that even a hyena would find mildly amusing.
And I'm sorry I didn't use your cartoon captions, but they sucked even worse than the ones submitted by your fellow minions.
In short, your fellow minions are screwing up my blog, and just as pro basketball players have to step it up when their star teammates get thrown out of the game for charging into the stands and pummeling hecklers, so must you provide the entertainment your fellow minions cannot or will not.
