Overworked...Underpaid?

Try a Thursday queez!
Yep, that's right. Instead of one 15 question queez tomorrow, we are getting a two part 12 question extravaganza! Mostly, it is because I am going batty at work, and need to procrastinate, so I will be building material all day.

For those playing at home, hands on your buzzers now please. The theme for this two part extravaganza: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
