Book 9: The Body Politic
Part II: Royal Flush


Elf:Wick. . . How come you didn't apply to be the new Demo Chief?
Wick:All I know how to do is stick detonators in little bricks of Boomex.
Elf:That's more than Pi knows how to do.
Wick:Are you kidding me? Pi's been making Boomex in the quarters for months now.
Elf:He can't be. It's motile. He would have to have nanoassemblers in his cabin.
Wick:Have a look at his "ant farm" sometime.
