Confusions and Connections

An Igor it is then…

In this final part of the reproduction of my series of posts about picking the right helper for an evil genius I will discuss why a horde may not be the best way to go…

Dave minion

It’s now decision time.  What sort of help to take on and help around the cave. I think going down the minion route is not going to be the best idea for the cave and my sanity in trying to control these evil masses.

So, if we rule out Dave and his friends then this only leaves the hiring of an Igor. Igors have always been the mainstay of the Evil Genius. They are loyal, good with their hands and can turn their hand to surgery at a blink of a poorly aimed laser.


They can have their problems.  Reading isn’t always their strong point. Getting a left arm stitched where a right one should be isn’t that much of a problem – sometimes this can be an advantage. On the other hand, mixing a “normal” and “Abnormal” (or even Abby Normal’s one – whoever she was).

Another of their “problems” is their ability to recognise when their employment is due to expire. This maybe down to a sense of being able to smell burning tar and the noisy clank of agricultural implements at several miles or the change of tone of their masters laughter that will spell the end of their employ.

So the order has been sent for an ACME Igor – I’ve asked it to be sent via the normal postal channels as I need a couple of days to finish building its cage, sorry, tiding up the room…
