June's Disgruntled Employee of the Month: Barbara Ashley, Manager, Amalgamated Humor Visitor's Center/Gift Shop
Gary Newbrunswick: So, I assume this is the busy season for you?
Barbara Ashley: Oh, you bet. Families come from all over to visit the plant during the vacation season and they end up right here at the end of the tour.
GN: Yes, I noticed there's really no way to exit the building except through here. Odd stuff.
BA: Oh we have everything you could possibly want to commemorate your visit to Amalgamated Humor. Cap'n Wacky t-shirts, commemorative plates, spoons, comic books, figurines, bells, snow globes, towels, pillow shams, tissue cozies, pens, pencils, erasers-
GN: These are just pink erasers with 'Amalgamated Humor' written on them in pen.
BA: Yes, you have to be careful, or else those will depreciate in value. Let's see, where was I? Oh, yes- dashboard hula Cap'n's, greeting cards, auto bingo games, Cap'n Wacky space ice cream-
BA: Right here- the kids love it.
GN: It seems that you've just taped a Cap'n head over the astronaut on the label, here.
BA: Oh, no. It just looks that way because of the mynar packaging.
BA: No, I'm sure you're wrong. Over here, we have marbles, glasses, mugs-
GN: What this? This is one of those things that you shake up and it snows inside with the New York skyline in it.
BA: No, that's the factory.
GN: No, Barbara. No, it's not. That's New York. This stuff is just crap! It's all complete crap.
BA: I don't think -
GN: Absolutely useless junk!
BA: Well, fine. What's your point, Gary?
GN: Well, nobody buys this crap, do they?
BA: Sure they do - by the truckload.
GN: Oh, well that's OK then.
