Scientology and Neopets: Path of Destruction



Here's a couple diddy's I did for Neopets a couple years back when I was living in L.A. Basically, in the application process I had to design two cards from some scenarios they gave me to choose from. Two Scientologist "Personality Test" and 3 interviews later and meeting the CEO of Neopets, I didn't get the job. And they got free artwork. I'm kinda glad, I didn't get the job there. First of all they probably only hired people that were easily sucked into Scientology. Not that I object to anybody's beliefs, but its just plain creepy and its kinda weird for this corporation to be tied into this "Cult" A Cult that makes millions of dollars, making these toys, cards, books, magazines, for you to buy for your children. The poor innocent children that are subconsciencely getting sucked into the grips of Scientology as it slowly drains your wallet supporting the cause. Second, they were only offering $500 a week before taxes, And with cost of living in L.A. so high, I would of been better off delivering pizzas. (No offense to Pizza Guys, I was once one myself for a few years!)


Mommy, I want Neopets for Christmas!

Dont worry It wasn't your talent that didnt get you hired...look at them, they look just like the characters on the cards...its the fact that you were not easily brainwashed!!! No offense John! (Travolta)

Besides if you would have gotten that job we wouldnt be here in vegas!!!!

Thats very true, I guess I wouldn't of bothered applying to my job here in Las Vegas. It's kinda funny getting rejected from a cult. I'm not good enough to worship aliens I suppose.

OMG! did you see the tom cruise bashing episode of south park recently? I saw a thing about it on CNN.com

they make fun of scientology being a cult and how tom cruise is gay.

Edward said...

Yeah, I happen to catch it the other night. It was so funny. TOm Cruise was literally in the closet because Stan (the reincarnation of L.Ron Hubbard) told him he didnt like his movies and he wouldnt come out. ANd everyone in town was telling Tom Cruise to "Come out of the Closet"! ANd R Kelly was there singing about everything he did and then pulling out a gun and singing about shooting somebody. Hillarious!

Oh .... just read your story .... yea .... their hiring process is really weird ... I fake the test (actually roll pencil to pick the answers ... HA !! HA !!), just so I can get the job to pay rent. But didn't stay there long ... LOL

Edward said...

Thats really funny ALina you worked there,I've heard it wasnt the best place to be employed at. As for me,it all worked out for the best, working there would not of been in my best interest.
