"Well, don't hold your breath. But you can send me samples if you want... Now I've got to get going..." "But sir sir sir... Just one more thing if I could." "What??" "Well, I see how you've given Berke Breathed a half page for his 'Opus' strip, so I'd like to demand a little more space for my comic strip, too..." "Are you kidding me?! You're not even in the paper and I"m sue you's no Breathed!!" "Ohh, I know, I know... I've got no problem with your giving Breathed a half page of the comics... I just want the front page of the paper, the editorial page, the sports section, the business pages, the classified and the entire "food" section... I mean, what's there to write about food? It's food, y'know? You eat it..." "... I'm the editor of the food section." "... That didn't go well."
