Alan Smithee

Nick Zima is going back into the porn business, but he's graciously offered to either let Alan Smithee live on as my imaginary boss or resign to Mulhausen and let him die an honorable death. The choice is mine. But I'm torn. Imaginary Smithee has certainly been entertaining and provided the support I've lacked with Mulhausen for a boss, but he's also caused his share of trouble for me. So I want to get reader opinion. Please take the poll below. If you read this post in a reader, please come to the site  and vote. And of course, comments to support your opinion are welcome. I value your input, especially since my judgment has been a little spotty lately...

But how do you bring someone back to life that everyone thinks is dead? And other people around the office saw the detective come in and question you right?

BTW, I voted for 'Stay' if you can come up with something clever in response to my questions. I don't doubt that you couldn't =P

Tech Babe, it's Jason X!!! He can bring people back from the dead ;o)

There is absolutely no reason why Smithee would not take his new post at Corporate (if there is such a place), which he recently accepted in response to the sudden death threat(s) made upon his life. Smithee is so skilled at his job that he can manage those he needs to manage (Jason X) from afar, on top of his new, higher-minded duties. Sure, he won't be as reachable to others as he used to be, such as Mulhausen, but in the name of teamwork and the greater good, they must accept his increased responsibility and work around his intimidating schedule. Perhaps he could share, from time to time, the lengthy, rambling and incomprehensible minutes from the countless meetings which he attends. Mulhausen should, of course, still run his action items for Jason X through Smithee as he was before; because the Org. Chart has not been subverted, but merely added upon.

LG...I don't doubt it. Jason can do and get away with just about anything! Not to mention, he, too, is surrounded by morons so they'll never catch on. =)

Remember, the "murder" was an assumption and a rumor. Smithee let himself be seen yesterday when he came into the office to fuck with me. Everything essentially goes back to normal now that the rumor has been put to rest. So Zima can go away and I can continue to pretend to have a boss that doesn't exist. Others will believe more than ever that he exists because they've seen Zima playing him. Or, I can tell Nick to go to Mulhausen and quit. Those are my options. Certainly, he could take a corporate job, but then even pretend Smithee will be mostly out of the picture.

I agree with Jason X. Everything goes back to normal. A sudden departure of Smithee will probably cause HR at some point in time to check for his files or do other crappy HR work they are so skilled at. That will uncover Smithee sooner than later; and that is not what Jason X would want.Let Smithee stay under more security. That would mean reduced reachability as someone else also suggested. The cover would be present for quite a while imho.

How did I miss that? Thank god for rumor mills!

I think Nick should hook you up with a stand-in role for one of his porn flix. Afterall, you just helped him diversify his acting resume...=P
