Cul de Sac by Richard Thompson for September 18, 2009
Ernesto: President of the high school student council is just the first step in my public service career. Petey: What's next? Ernesto: I'm not sure, but eventually I see myself commanding a few thousand jump-suited minions from my office within a not-quite-extinct volcano where I maintain my diabolical machinery for controlling the weather on a global scale. Petey: My sister flushes ice cubes so it'll snow. Ernesto: How very charming! She can work for me!
