“30 Rock” is no more, except in reruns and on Netflix, Hulu, etc.
So how are you going to get ahead in business, and in life, without the unsolicited advice of the ultimate complacent, conceited, sexist, paternalistic, right-wing, perfectly-coiffed boss, Jack Donaghy?
Well, you won’t have to, because Salon marked the passing of the series by collecting some of Jack’s best worst advice. A sample:
- Letting morality get in the way of making money. I might as well go and be a teacher.
- I like when a woman has ambition; it’s like seeing a dog wearing clothes.
- Once I set my mind on something I have to accomplish it. Ten years ago I was one and a half inch shorter than I am today. Pure will-power.
- I get my hair cut every two days. After all, your hair is your headsuit.
- I have faith in things I can see and buy and deregulate. Capitalism is my religion.
- Next stop: home ownership. Just kidding. The middle class is dying. You’ll be renting forever.
- The president is only going to veto your crazy social programs — the founding fathers never intended for the poor to live into their 40s.
- Do not hire Sting to play the [wedding] reception. He’ll insist on doing jazz versions of Police songs, and it’s just … demoralizing.
- Rich 50 is middle-class 38.
