Hello. Do not be alarmed, but I am not The Jefe. My name is Manuel Elisando. I am filling in for The Jefe while he is on strike. Many of you are wondering why it has been so long since he has posted on this blog. Apparently no one told The Jefe that the writers strike was only for TV and movie writers. The Jefe heard about the strike and did not want to cross the picket line and risk offending the union. He fails to realize he is not in the union nor is he even getting paid for writing this blog. I have been told, however, he still looks in his mailbox for the check after every blog entry.

It seems The Program was getting bored being idle and waiting for either the strike to end or The Jefe to realize he is an idiot so it took matters into its own hands. It found me at a Home Depot with some fellow compatriots looking for work. Since I speak English, am not unionized, and even the mere thought of collective bargaining is punishable by death where I come from, The Program decided I would be a great scab.

I do not know what else to say. I don't think I can muster the stomach to write the same type of sad "humor" that fills the previous blog entries. I also can't write about lame insights I had into the Daily Show or Colbert Report because they are all reruns due to the strike. I also have never met The Burger nor Gus. I guess all we can do is hope for the strike to come to an end. Soon. Please.

Sdtk: "Heck no, we won't go! Heck no, we won't go!...."
