Book 1: The Tub of Happiness — Equivocated Prevarication


DoytHaban: (haban) It's like this, captain. The network of wormgates that makes galactic civilization possible is being used to make a single race unstoppably powerful and wealthy.
Haban II: Don't get us wrong: wealth is just fine, and power is cool. But in this case they are being obtained via the systematic exploitation and destruction of innocent people.
Tagon: I thought that was always how wealth and power were obtained.
Haban II: He's got a point.
DoytHaban: (haban) Yeah, but you used that punchline yesterday.
Haban II: No. YOU used that punchline yesterday.
Narrator: Ack. We've definitely got one haban too many.
