Donna Walker, the Sale-inator, has vowed to only use her super powers for good. She’s able to overcome advertiser objections and has the unique ability to turn “maybes” into “yeses.” Her super powers focus on our publication’s ability to place area businesses or services into the minds and mailboxes of 50,000 Edmond area residents. Other ancillary super powers include the ability to communicate stress through barely audible signs and secure excellent ticket to key OU football games.
The Sale-inator’s sales sidekick is Benelei Rother. AKA the Pink Avenger. She is able to completely decorate a 6’ x 6’ workspace in 2 full work days – complete with 1 wall shelf and a dozen picture frames. This unique ability has one drawback, everything is pink. Together with Donna, this dynamic duo can transform little known businesses into household words; can take your business services and put them on 50,000 Edmond area coffee tables.
Jaimi Aycock is our mild mannered graphic designer, that is until she hears the classic rock anthem, “We are the Champions” by Queen and then she transforms into a really bad foosball player. Not much a super hero skill – but hey, she’s one heck of a designer.
Josh Hatfield, is our part-time designer. Josh is capable of getting work done quickly, but chooses to conserve his energy to maximize his super hero alter-ego… The Deliverer. Josh utilizes his super directions skills (and his ’97 Mazda) to deliver packages, materials and artwork to various clandestine locations. “I can get to Loves in Choctaw in about 23 minutes!”
Peyton Hutchison, AKA Ginger Spice. No, not the one from the girl’s band. Peyton is actually allergic to the spice Ginger. Once ingested she gets sleepy and loopy. Not necessarily in that order. Some would say this mind-altering state does not qualify as a super power – but once observed, it definatley qualifies as super entertaining. Her altered state can go virtually undetected until she speaks.
Fear the Grillmaster! Is embroidered on Teddy Burch's super hero tights. Teddy can share recipe after recipe without rest or reference. From applewood smoked turkey to the importance of white pepper – no appetite is safe. Teddy chose the super hero name Grill Master over the Baster, Braiser, and marinader. “I like the marinader, but I didn’t think it instilled fear.”
The Mind Bender, Dave Miller possesses amazing mind changing abilities. Unfortunately, the mind changing abilities don’t affect anyone but himself. “I like that. No, I don’t” Move that to the right, no don’t. A lighter shade of chartuse would look better. No, maybe magenta. Dave explains, “I only use my super powers for good -and the frustrations of staff members.”
