An Agent Comes A-Knockin'

If we've learned anything from the whole Edward Snowden debacle it's that when you post highly sensitive and staggeringly important information on the Internet, sooner or later government agents are going to come looking for you. Which is why it was only a matter of time before they came knocking on our doors.

It was weird, though, because the agent that discovered us didn't seem all that threatening. If anything, she seemed friendly about it all.



As an agent, she had us sign some paperwork that we probably should have read. We don't know if it was for a traffic summons or maybe she made us take out a mortgage, but if it is, the joke's on her; you can't steal money from people who don't actually have any in the first place!





Writers especially say that agents are essential, but if they're so useful, how come they can't even carry out a basic assassination? We were beginning to wonder what Agent Holly could even do for us.






So if you haven't already guessed, today's post is us announcing that we've signed with a kick ass agent named Holly from MacGregor Literary, who unlike many agents we've dealt with in the past is funny, personable, and answers e-mails faster than 3-6 business months. She actually replies to us the same day we send her something (who does that?).

But this announcement comes with both good and bad news.

The good news is that she wants to represent us, and as her first item of business, she wants to shop around a book version of our blog, with almost entirely all new content, to be printed in full color through a major publisher.

The bad news, of course, is that she will not assassinate our sworn foes, nor can she help us meet Captain America.

We'd still like to think the good far outweighs the bad. So stay tuned for more info on the blog book as it becomes available to us, and until next time...

Cheers and stay classy, folks!

    1. I understand we can't meet Thor, since he lives in Asgard, but I really question an agent's power when we can't even meet Captain America, who lives in, spoiler alert, AMERICA. (And thanks!)

    2. Captain America... lives in America? I'm shocked. I thought he lived on a boat. Har.

    1. Hey, we've always succeeded with writing. Like, yesterday I wrote a grocery list and didn't once put "beer" on it. I actually wrote down food. SUCCESS. Or the day before that when we signed our contracts I wrote my name legibly. So legibly that it looks like an actual signature and not an oil spill having a seizure. SUCCESS!

    1. What's nice about having an agent is she does all of the soul negotiating, so that's a plus, because I don't really know what my soul's worth. Two goats and a shekel, maybe?

      We've had many successes as writers, but making our own blog book was always something we wanted to do but wouldn't have the resources for. So thanks to Holly, maybe we can be the next Oatmeal. Or I guess at this point I'd even settle for Archie and Jughead.

    1. Oh, no, see, we're going to do what Hyperbole and a Half did. We're just going to stop posting altogether, claim we were depressed about a year later, and then mysteriously start posting again once our book is going to be released. After all of our fans buy our books, then we're going to disappear again, taking your sweet money with us.

      Delete
    2. So, I'm embarrassed to admit, I never heard of Hyperbole and a Half. I headed to Lord Bing (yeah, that's right, Bing!) and looked her up. Just for the record, your drawings are WAY better so no need to be depressed.

  7. It would be pretty sweet to get ripped off by Iron Man. There's no shame either because the dude is a genius. Congratulations on getting another agent you guys and it's good to hear this one is competent and friendly. I wouldn't mind an agent but it seems like one of those infinite circles where you need an agent to be successful, but you need to be successful to be an agent. So I have to be successful first. Well I'm sure I can do that if I try hard enough.

    1. I wonder if in typical ex-girlfriend-like behavior now that we have a new, competent agent our old agent will suddenly come crawling back to us, at midnight, stand outside our window with a boombox and blast all of our old favorite songs while reminding us of the good times.

      ...Nah. Fuck him.

      And just remember: you don't need an agent to be successful. We were doing well without ours; she's merely going to help us with a blog book, which we couldn't have done on our own.

      Delete
    2. Yeah my response to that would be "What good times?" From the sounds of it that dude really messed you over. This one sounds more fun and competent. Maybe agents work like girlfriends and it's only after you've been messed around you really find the good ones. I don't know if I really need an agent specfically but it seems I need some help.

  8. This has to be the MOST CREATIVE Agent announcement ever. I laughed and laughed and laughed. Well, you get the idea. Your blog is hilarious and would actually make an excellent book... so I think Holly is onto something. Of course, since she is making 4/4 of the money it is bound to be a raging success.... for her! Hahahahaha.

    It sucks that she can't hook you up with Thor, though.

    1. It's okay, if she can't hook us up with Thor maybe she can at least hook us up with his hair stylist. I've always wanted long, luxurious blonde locks, and if we're going to be making that sweet 0/4ths money, then a long, flowing mane is but around the corner.

  12. >>... Like, yesterday I wrote a grocery list and didn't once put "beer" on it.

    Yeah, maybe... maybe... but I ALREADY KNEW that you had run out of beer, because I saw your sign-off:

    >>... Beer: Old Style
    Music: Stevie Ray Vaughan


    NOBODY would drink "Old Style" unless they had run out of beer.

    This "B" shocking "B"ut "B"orderline GREAT news, "B"rother "B"eer "B"oys!
    I wish you tons of book sales, great wealth, huge egos, massive black automobiles, expensive sunglasses for day and night, and an impossible-to-cloak disdain for "the little people". (That's how I spell "SUCK-CESS!" And I'd love to attain it someday my damn-self.)

    I was disappointed that there wasn't even one teensy-tiny photograph of a beer bottle in this blog bit for me to try to identify but... if you're outta beer, you're outta beer. The great news almost compensates for my disappointment though.

    Say... ask Agent Holly if she knows ROCKY & BULLWINKLE. I don't care a hoot about some stupid comic book superheroes, but could Holly introduce me to the "Plucky Squirrel" and that superstar Moose of the gridiron from Wossamotta U.? I would love to meet my two idols.

    Also... please tell Agent Holly that I could turn my 'Ferret-Faced Fascist Friends' blog into a frighteningly funny political conspiracy theories handbook. I won't work for 'Old Style' but I will work for beer.

    Seriously though, CONGRATULATIONS again, Beer Brothers! It couldn't have happened to two more likeable lushes.

      I think we should ask Holly if she knows Rocky and Bullwinkle, if only to test her allegiance; if all she knows is Boris and Natasha, then we may have to cut our ties with her completely. As writers with integrity, we simply cannot work with anyone who wants to keel moose and squiddel.

      We've never been anti-agent, but I think way too many authors throw themselves at any agent available, just hoping and praying anyone will take them on, even if the agent isn't right for them. It's about you finding the right agent, not just any agent finding you.

      Our last agent was a dick who responded to us about once every 6 months, and his ratio of talk to action was about 1000 to 1, so we don't regret firing him and forging our own path. But we also don't regret reaching out to Holly and finding someone whose action to talk ratio is much more balanced.

      Now the only thing that truly sucks is the waiting.

  52. Wow, I love this post. Well,not the part about the agent taking all your money, or the poor math skills, or even the Iron Man stuffs, but the fact that your blog might become a book. Keep in mind that I still want those front row seats when Slim or Demiti or anybody out of your imaginations makes it to Broadway. Me? I'm not to hip to say I knew you when and I still know and like you now.

    1. Not sure about Broadway. Maybe the silver screen? I mean, I don't know how many people want to see a musical about a homeless guy eating out of the trash or a guy in a trailer trying to control his mentally retarded sister.

    3. It would help if I could type, or spell, or open up the computer, instead if trying to comment from the 'dumb phone'.

    1. We didn't. I mean, I'm sure in essence we signed away our souls and the literary agency now is in possession of our names, our bodies, and 2 generations worth of children. But... totally worth it!

  54. That's like the most amazing thing that could ever happen to a writer EVER. You didn't even get the agent, the agent came and got you, so you KNOW your books are damn good. Congrats!!

    1. Yes, and this is why we love Russia. In communist Russia, agent gets you.

  55. Wow! Congratulations, you guys deserve it. And how cool is it that her name is Holly? Hello, Holly-wood. Holly-day-in?

    Now, I'm just throwing this out there, but if you ever need a cartoon about vaginas in your book...I'll take the hit. We don't even need to make a big thing of it. Just use the signal.

  56. But um.... (which kinda sounds like bottom)... she's funny, personable, and answers e-mails? So, what's the catch?

  58. Congratulations on your amazing news. How exciting and your agent sounds like she is "da bomb." A book of your blog with more content to read is going to be a hit. And congrats on the very best "how I got my agent," post, ever written.

    1. Thanks! And hey, we figure if we're going to brag about getting an agent, we should at least make it entertaining and continue to remind everyone that we're mostly idiotic, so us having an agent is probably just dumb luck or bad judgment on Holly's part.
