Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Bureaucracy Bountiful


Narrator: Working crowd control at the Nectaris City Bureau of Licenses and Permits, Luna.
Breya: Look at the size of this crowd.
Tagon: It's not just a protest, Breya. It's a long-term sit-in shanty-town.
Breya: They seem to be pretty well organized. I see concessions stands, portable toilets... These folks know how to run a demonstration.
Tagon: That just makes our job easier. It means someone here is in charge.
Tagon: Excuse me, can you tell me who is running this protest?
Luna Pedestrian: What protest?
Tagon: The one behind you, with the 20,000 angry people, and the tent city, and the rollaway crappers.
Luna Pedestrian: That ain't a protest, mister. That's the line.
