Business cards are very prestigious.
Wow though, I am sure that guy in the onion article is enjoying his life now but just wait until he gets older, doesn't have a band, has no money, the girl leaves him, can't pay any medical bills he might have, is deep in debt and can expect to work until he dies. He is pretty much destroying any chance he has at a decent future. And 8.54/hour?! I made almost that in high school doing some 15 hours/week job. There are also plenty of jobs that pay twice what he's making and he could still surf the web most of the day too, what an idiot, he is getting royally screwed.
