One uneventful funeral later. . .
Captain, I have studied more than a little bit of human culture.
Nowhere have I found brightly colored, conical hats and inflatable noisemakers to be appropriate funeral attire.
In fact, they only seem to appear during celebrations of the New Year and childrens' parties.
We were. . . Celebrating Xinchub's. . . Umm. . . Rebirth as an icon of your new society. . . and. . . umm. . .
Here is your pay. Take your party hats and go.
If it's over, I've got dibs on the cheese tray.
