That might mean you had several more meetings with the janitorial staff and the Worcester-3 chapter of the United Association, if my own experiences with Mexican food are anything to go by.

INT SCENE: An OILY MECHANIC'S SHOP. Hanging from several LARGE HOOKS are some DISMEMBERED ROBOTS. Enter GRYPHON, wheeling MERCUTIO on a small trolley in front of him. He accosts a TRADESMAN, stout of middle and greasy of overall.

GRYPHON: Hey, um, excuse me? I got a pedant 'bout 18 months ago and I think a few wires're crossed-

TRADESMAN: Lemme see that...

[The TRADESMAN briefly examines MERCUTIO, who is TWITCHING and SPEAKING IN TONGUES]

TRADESMAN: I getcha. Wants to read all your old stuff, is it? How far back we talkin' here?

GRYPHON [With a look of INCREASING WORRY]: Uh, something like two decades.

[The TRADESMAN makes a peculiar noise by sucking air through his teeth. This is a bad sign in any field, but particularly this one.]

TRADESMAN: Oh boy, this is gonna be fun. Don't worry, you got a 5-year, 100,000-nitpick warranty with this model. We'll take this out to the university lot over in Stumblebum, see if them college boys can make somethin' outta this. [He LAUGHS, with a noise like a SINK BEING UNBLOCKED] We'll see what happens, butcha might git your old stuff reviewed anyhow. Yer pedant's in safe hands.

MERCUTIO: The difference between DJ and Shinji is that the latter is a protagonist and the former is a hero-

TRADESMAN: Sure it is, son. C'mon, let's getcha on the table...

FiMFiction.net: we might accept blatant porn involving the cast of My Little Pony but as God is my witness we have standards.

Can you tell it's three in the morning yet?
