#Fastball – there’s a new social media internship trending on Twitter… like a violent torpedo of truth. Yes, that would be Charlie Sheen’s Tiger Blood Internship. Sheen is offering a #winning opportunity, and so are we – but just how similar are the #tigerbloodintern and the #islandintern?
Let’s explore some Sheen-isms to find out:
1. Tiger Blood. We’re fairly certain there are margays on Isla Palenque, and maybe even a black jaguar that wandered over from a nearby island once. But the nocturnal jungle cat that likes to prowl our beaches has not made himself seen to a single island visitor yet. While staking it out in hopes of spotting these elusive cats, the #islandintern can help themselves to fresh coconut water, Panamanian rum and local beer, but if you start referring to your beverage as #tigerblood, we might suggest that it’s time to call it a night.
2.Carry a machete.
You may find yourself brandishing a machete – but it won’t be because you’re making a statement about getting fired, it’s just kind of a necessary tool in Latin America, utilized for lawn mowing, coconut opening, bushwhacking, snake killing and a variety of other uses.
3. Breaching Whales.
Sheen-ism: “They continue to be in breach, like so many whales. It is a big day of gladness at the Sober Valley Lodge…”
You’ll definitely see whales off the coast of Isla Palenque, especially between the months of June through October…but we cannot offer you a stay at Sober Valley Lodge, sorry. You can, however, stay at our Isla Palenque Villa Inn, coming later this year – it’s sure to be a stay of gladness.
4. Tree hugger.
Sheen-ism: “…we save a bunch of trees, because they give us our oxygen, face it, right? And we love trees – must keep as many around as we can. Must maybe even marry a tree. Yes, marry a tree because, you know, the other type of marriage for me didn’t work. So I’m just going to marry a tree.”
Oh face it, we’re saving Isla Palenque trees because they give us oxygen..among other reasons. Over 200 acres of Isla Palenque are set aside as a nature preserve and we’re keeping around almost every tree over 6 inches in diameter. However, some of our old growth trees are up to 10 ft wide – that might not make for the best snuggle buddy if you’re considering marriage.
5. Terrestrial realm.
As a #tigerbloodintern you will report to someone who claims his “brain is not from this terrestrial realm.” While islands are often referred to as paradise, an escape or even heaven on earth, we promise, that as an #islandintern you will greatly enjoy Isla Palenque’s terrestrial qualities like the dense jungle, wildlife, coconut groves and all nine of our sandy, sun soaked beaches. The terrestrial realm is really quite nice on a tropical island.
Sheen-ism: “It’s been a tsunami of media and I’ve been riding it on a mercury surfboard.”
As a #tigerbloodintern you will indeed be riding a tsunami of media coverage. As an #islandintern you will be managing social media, yes, but luckily Panama isn’t known for tusnamis, is below the hurricane belt and your surfing opportunities will be in the 20ft swells of nearby Moro Negrito.
7. Feel special.
Sheen-ism: “I’m tired of pretending I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total bitchin’ rock star from Mars.”
You’ll definitely feel special if you beat out thousands of #tigerblood tweeting wanna-be’s to be the #tigerbloodintern…but that won’t make you the very first intern to live on a tropical island in Panama having the adventure of a lifetime…so, we’re thinking the #islandintern wins this one.
The tiger blood internship is a great opportunity. Iif it sounds like we’re saying differently, we apologize…no, take that back, we halfway apologize, we apol, because our Island Internship is just totally winning.
