Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse
Part II: Enter the Longshoreman


Narrator:Meanwhile, back at Northport Dock One. . .
Para Ventura:How is it going, Lota?
Lota:This is inefficient, mistress. Lota needs more boxes at once.
Para Ventura:Pi, can you get the guys up there to pick up the pace a little bit? Or maybe a lot? They don't listen to me.
Pibald:They just need the right motivation.
Pibald:Chisulo! Andy! Drinks are on me if any of you can knock the robot down with boxes!
Para Ventura:Oh, wow. It's like a brown, pixelated waterfall.
Pibald:Just so you know, those drinks will be on you, not on me. I'm crazy, not eccentric.
