Book 1: The Tub of Happiness
Diplomatic Pouch of Doom


Brad:I'm miserable. I feel so guilty. The ambassador sacrificed himself, and we helped.
Schlock:There, there, Brad.
Brad:Oh, that makes me feel much better. C'mon, Schlock. "There, there". Is that the best you can do?
Schlock:Hmmmm. Okaaay..... Try looking at it like this....
Schlock:If you'd given your life instead, then right now you would be in mercenary Valhalla, while our poor, dear-departed, ambassador would be here with me complaining about how guilty he felt. See the guilt you saved him from? See what a great thing you did?
Brad:<Sigh> I wish I were in Valhalla right now...
Schlock:There, there, Brad.
