Strip by: Colin Foster

T-Rex: You had one job!
T-Rex: To sell pizza!
T-Rex: And you did a remarkable job of it! Good work!
Utahraptor: Can I have another job now?
T-Rex: Sure! Go run a non-profit!
Utahraptor: Yippee!
Text: THIS HAS BEEN MISUNDERSTOOD MEME THEATRE

The author writes:

Two observations about writing these strips:

1. Sometimes, it's hard to think of something to even begin writing about. I was trying to think of something, anything to have T-Rex say, and I thought of the Internet meme "you had one job." Then the rest kind of followed out of trying to avoid the actual meaning of the meme.

2. There's something oddly satisfying about not having Utahraptor be the voice of reason like he usually is. I almost like to think that this strip is him and T-Rex playing like little kids, not understanding how employment works.
