Dark Day For Jeeves

Well, its a dark day for Jeeves – he’s getting the sack. The man (can you call him that) has graced the screens and domain of AskJeeves.com for around a decade, he calls the shots over at BlogLines (they were acquired for an undisclosed price last Autumn) an he’s become an absolute icon and catch phrase among internet users.

And now, his P45 is in the post. Anyone in need of a famous internet valet for their homepage?

Update : After writing this post, I came across Save Jeeves via AllEver, as written by a “fan and former employee” speaking in “defense of The Butler”.

    I think there was a non competition clause in his contract with Ask.. Look at the bright side – he’s now free to become a farmer!

    🙂 you may be right! FarmerJeeves.com – the number one source for all your farming related queries! Start a competition to find him a new job… You think he’d fit in on The Apprentice 🙂

    Sounds like a fun project – we could start something like the “Jeeves unemployment fund”.. hah:) hmmmm..
