We've been keeping a secret from you: we have an illegal BUST employee. He isn't on the payroll. We do pay him with love, a place to hang out during the day, and scraps. Truth be told, though, Wally the office dog is probably our most valuable staff member. He's constantly pitching original content, posting blogs, and chatting it up with cover girls for the magazine.
