Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Tycho is in the foreground, facing the audience. Gabe is carrying a picture of a American Football player.}
Tycho: The first round of screenshots of a game are always lies. We know this, but because we want them to be real, we suspend out belief.
Gabe: Where do these go?
Tycho: My judo grip on English has allowed me to create a word that describes this phenomenon perfectly: Bullshot.

Panel 2

{Tycho is stood to the right of Exhibit A, showing to the audience. Gabe is stood to the left of Exhibit B, facing Tycho.}
Gabe: Hey! That's my word!
Tycho: Shut your Goddamn mouth. Exhibit A is a textbook example of a bullshot, an image ginned up by marketing and foisted on people who don't know any better. Now, look at Exhibit B. Gaze ye upon the next generation, and despair!
Gabe: This isn't fair. I came up with that word.
Tycho: I swear to God I will stab you in the mouth. That's a new one, huh? You ever been stabbed in there?
