The Stuffed Creative

So what exactly is a stuffed creative? Is that you at 3:30 p.m. when the food coma has set in and your feeble attempts at staying awake are physicaly comedy Chaplin would love? Is it those extra 10-15 pounds you've put on from eating 4 twinkies just to get you through shit days, which have numbered in the triple digits during your year?


The stuffed creative is pretty much one of the favorite recipes from some of the places I've worked at.

Take your average garden variety creative. Preferrably someone who is healthy and productive and stuff them full of work, stupid revisions, anger, frustratin, dejection, retarded due dates, more work, workplace melodrama and let simmer anywhere from eight months to a year and a half (or more depending on the chop shop). Then when the creative is at breaking point, when they look at themselves in the mirror and don't like who they see, when they are creatively stunted, physically sick and emotionally broken, take your finest pink slip and add as garnish.


If you find any of these ingredients being added to your recipe for "professional development" and you feel as if your tender thighs are being pried open and you're getting stuff with things you really don't enjoy having inside you, consider yourself warned.
