You have it confused. There are two stories going on at the same time in MFD: Gilroy's job, which is the one run by the fruitcake on the boat (L'Amour Industries, I think?), and Stephen Le'Vamp's zany adventures at Magenta Corp, which is of course run by Mr. Magenta the wannabe supervillain from the first "season" of MDF.
Gilroy works for (presumed name, since none has been given) Mr. L'Amour, the balding nutcase on the boat.
Here's the timeline:
Season 1: Gilroy graduates college, gets a job as a contractor (via shady recruiter) to work for Magenta Corp. By the end, Magenta thinks he's a spy and fires him an hour before his contract is up.
Pre-Season 2: Gilroy is in the cage by the gorilla. Presumably has several interviews at this point, but nothing comes to fruition.
Season 2: Gilroy is hired by L'Amour, or rather browbeaten into thinking he agreed to the job. Meanwhile, Magenta hires the vampire Stephen Le'Vamp because he has the "Medallion of Power". Magenta also lures COBOL Bill back to work through treats. He evidently now also has some day laborer Java programmers, who Bill rounded up from some computer store.
Like I said, there are two different stories going on, and the comics alternate between the two: Gilroy's story, and Magenta's.
So I've finally realised that Gilroy and Jenkins are actually different characters. Glad I'm not the only person who missed out on that rather pertinent point. Alas, it doesn't make any of the comics any funnier...
I'm joking, I love MFD! Between reading this and doing work, it's a no-brainer!
Please tell me I haven't dropped a letter somewhere. Please tell me I haven't dropped a letter somewhere. Please tell me I haven't dropped a letter somewhere. Please tell me I haven't dropped a letter somewhere.
I was thinking of something relevant like 'MANAGEMENT something something' which leaves TRACESTYPIG.
