Total Dis’

Do you notice anything strange in this bit from the Arts section of today’s New York Times?

A few (striking) writers have returned to gigs they had hoped to forget: waiting tables, bartending, copywriting, tutoring. Some who began as performers have returned to the grind of auditioning for commercials.

That’s right, copywriting is just one of the shitty jobs held by real writers who later go on to work in TV.
