XTC Versus Adam Ant, Part 2
Same place, but it’s obviously been awhile, if you can indicate that. They are bent over a diagram. This should be a four-panel strip with a lot of headspace for balloons, since it’s REALLY wordy.
TOM: Obviously, it’s a polar bear – that’s the fiercest bear –
KARLA: - and a Great White shark, they’re mean.
TOM: And we’ve agreed that the tank has to be halfway up the bear’s waist.
KARLA: Too low, the shark drowns; too high, the bear can’t fight at all.
TOM: But you can’t just put them in the same room and let them go at it.
KARLA: No, because the first one to strike would win. You have to make sure they both start out fighting each other.
TOM: So we starve the shark and bear so they’re hungry, and then separate them with plexiglass….
KARLA: …a bell rings to alert the bear that a shark is coming, and we remove the barrier. Water floods in, and…
TOM: Bam. Instant bear-shark fight.
(Pause, if not a full panel.)
KARLA (slightly distressed yet still cynical): You realize we’ve now spent more time designing an imaginary sharkfight than we did planning our home insurance policy.
TOM (loftily): Please. An imaginary bearfight.
