Go away or I’ll call the brute squad!


#3

What could possibly go wrong?


#4

First to set up a service to send in the clowns? Anyone?


#5

Wow, only $35/hour. That seems cheap enough for plenty of practical jokes.

Would they be willing to have one jump out of a birthday cake?


#6

“Let’s settle this outside!”

“Very well. Shall we say in…about thirty minutes?”


#7

For some reason I read it as “Bananaman”. I guess that would be a different service.


#8

Anyone else a getting a Bad Feeling about situations where you’d want hired muscle; but would be receiving all the loyalty $35 dollars an hour can buy from a short term contractor? I’d be much more comfortable with the joke uses.


#9

Just look at it


#10

Here we go, this is the crazy technolibertarian future we were all waiting for.


#11

Surprised that they didn’t go for the obvious Übermensch

Uber + jack-booted-thugs = Godwinned comment


#12

I am the brute squad!


#13

If I want hired muscle, I want Hulk, not Banner, man.

Do I have to make him angry myself?

My first job was with the phone company, and in doing some engineery accounty thing, I discovered they had an accounting code for “Escort Services.” Being 20-something, my mind went right in the gutter, but my boss explained that when they had to put up a microwave tower in a really bad part of town, the technicians would sometimes hire a rent-a-cop for an hour. So this really isn’t a new thing, except Internet!!!

When in a dickish mood, must remember to keep an emergency $50 bill so that I can outbid any challengers.


#19

A, err, friend, of my father in law actually did just that with some legbreakers hired to do him over; doubled their fee & sent 'em back to their original employer with new instructions…

Short-term gain at the expense of the thugs’ reputation. Word gets around that they’ll turn on their employers for a few bucks, nobody will ever hire them again. Not to mention the betrayed employer would likely hire a whole crew of other guys to go after them.
