"Is that a gram?"
"New comic. Whaddya think?"
Lowtax slides his comic across the table; it's off-white, with the words SOMETHING AWFUL: MANGOSTEEN PURVEYOR AND BOXING CHAMP centered and embossed in black.
The assembled party gasp in admiration.
Lowtax leans back in his chair.
"Picked 'em up from the printers yesterday."
"That's Barefoot Red. And the lettering is something called Ambien scribblings."
Another strugger interrupts Lowtax.
"Impressive", Lowtax mutters. "Let's see GAPO's comic."
The room falls silent as the third strugger produces an absent colleague's comic.
Lowtax speaks in voiceover.
"Look at that subtle colouring. The tasteful thickness."
His face creases in horror.
"Oh my God. It even has a NIGGER TRANNY FAGGOT INC QR CODE."
