Two action heroes hide behind cover, glancing at a helicopter nearby.

Action Hero 1: If we’re fast, we can make it to that helicopter.

Action Hero 2: But helicopters always crash and explode!

Action Hero 1: What? No they don’t.

Action Hero 2: Yes, they do. Every time.

Action Hero 1: Think about this. If they exploded every time, who would pay to produce them?


At a factory, robed figures in hard hats gather before a completed helicopter. The manager raises their arms in exaltation.

Manager: A new sacrifice for the fire gods! 

Workers: Huzzah!

P.S. Our bills are paid by our wonderful patrons. Could you chip in?
