Transcript of cartoon:
The panel shows two white men; one is wearing a turtleneck shirt, the other is wearing a necktie with a sweatervest. Both are balding, but Sweatervest’s hair is neatly cut while Turtleneck’s hair looks roughly close-cropped.
Sweatervest is seated behind a desk, and is calm. Turtleneck, looking more intense, is scooting his chair forward to talk more closely at Sweatervest.
TURTLENECK: Shhh! If you listen very carefully, you can hear the tiny grad students hiding in our ear canals.
SWEATERVEST: That’s not for us.
Turtleneck has gotten out of his seat entirely and is leaning forward so far his chin almost hits the desk. He’s yelling. Sweatervest remains calm, and has barely moved.
TURTLENECK: Dogs bark in a code that only the North Koreans understand! Woof! WOOF! (Are you listening, Kim?)
SWEATERVEST: Thanks for coming in, but…
Eyes and mouth bulging open, Turtleneck makes such a big sweeping gesture that he kicks over his chair without noticing. Sweatervest has stood up, smiling, and is offering a handshake.
TURTLENECK: Climate change is a HOAX!
SWEATERVEST: When can you start?
