Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part II: Barsoom Circus Command


MANAGER: You there, amorph.  Did you just tell a woman that you could find her lost child because they were both stinky?

SCHLOCK: The word I used was bouquet.

MANAGER: Can you really do that?  Is your sense of smell that good?

SCHLOCK: You eat lots of whole grains, legumes, and fish, you clean your suit with tetrachloroethylene, and you use Kilted Warchief aftershave.

MANAGER: Report to security.  We'd like to offer you a new job.

SCHLOCK: The aftershave is probably hiding the smells of two different women from each other, but not from me.

MANAGER: With a pay raise for being discreet.
