Cast: Reporter, Dr. Bob Arnot

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

{Text is shown to the audience.}
Text: Just when you think we've finally stopped blaming human catastophe on videogames, MSNBC has to go and cock the whole thing up. In what can only be called shock - or shlock? - journalism, Dr. Bob Arnot panders in the worst way to American fears, suggesting that flight simulators may be responsible for the destruction of the World Trade Center.

Panel 2

{Scene change. Reporter's hand is giving Bob a pencil. Bob is stood reaching for the item. Reporter off panel. Box at top.}
Box: Who in the fuck is his editor? For that matter, who in the fuck is he? And what staggering constellation of editorial and journalistic failures allowed this man to command a pencil?
Bob: Please?
Reporter: {off panel} No.
Bob: But I'm a Doctor!

Panel 3

{Scene change. Bob is in a darkened area, wearing lipstick, tie untied, shirt untucked and holding a liquor bottle. Box at top.}
Box: We'd like to think that after Bob loses his job at MSNBC, he'll be able to sweep up the debris of his wasted life - and move into something maybe more his speed, like selling his ass for cheap liquor.
