[BILL is relaxing and reading a newspaper in the KAR HQ break room. LEARNEDFOOT enters.]
FOOT: 'Sup Bill?
BILL: Just reading about Japanese politics. The race to replace the current Prime Minister, and what not.
FOOT: I see. You know what they call elections in Japan?
BILL: No. What?
FOOT: "Erections!" Ha ha!
BILL: I normally don't like such off color humor, yet your quip amuses me.
FOOT: Yeah yeah, whatever. So who's running for Japan's PM post?
FOOT: Well, I never!
BILL: Never what?
FOOT: That was certainly uncalled for!
BILL: Hey - you asked a question, and I answered it.
FOOT: No you didn't. I asked you who was running for PM and you said "Fukuda!"
FOOT: So who's the candidate?
BILL: Like I said, Fukuda.
FOOT: Listen, pal - if you don't want to tell me -
BILL: But I did tell you!
FOOT: Tell me what?
BILL: The candidate's name.
FOOT: Which is...
BILL: Settle down. It's not important.
FOOT: I think it's very important when my Art Director says "Fukuda" when I ask him a simple question.
BILL: But that was the answer to your question!
FOOT: What was the answer????
FOOT: [Gritting teeth] Ok, then...who is the other candidate in the race to replace Shinzo Abe?
FOOT: [Shrieking] Wha - WHAT???
FOOT: I heard you, but I didn't really believe it.
BILL: Well believe it. The other candidate is Aso.
FOOT: Oh. I thought you were calling me - oh never mind. So this other candidate whom you don't apparently like - what's his name?
FOOT: Yeah you told me what you think of him, I just want to know what his name is.
FOOT: No. I heard what you called him. But who is the "Aso"?
FOOT: What's correct?
BILL: His name.
FOOT: Yes - but what is Aso's name?
FOOT: yes, what?
FOOT: ...is the candidate by the name of...
FOOT: Perhaps I'm not making myself clear. What is the name of the fellow that you keep calling an Aso?
FOOT: The candidate?
BILL: Yes - Aso.
FOOT: Again, no need to get personal.
BILL: I'm not getting personal. His name is Aso.
BILL: Get it now?
FOOT: Yes, just barely.
BILL: Eh. It's a moot point anyway. Apparently the election was already held...
BILL: Fukuda pounded Aso.*
DEMENTEE: HEY HOMIES!!!!!!! WHATCHOO GUYS TALK ABOUT?????!!!!!
BILL: And Aso!
DEM: WELL, AREN'T WE A COUPLE OF BITCHES TODAY!!!!! DEMENTEE NOT STAND FOR SUCH ABUSE!!!!! ME BID YOU GOOD DAY SIRS!!!!!!
BILL: Geez. What's his problem?
FOOT: I guess he has trouble with erections.
BILL: In particular, the Fukuda-Aso erection!
