Lounge Lizard #1: So you’ve been working here a while…. What kind of clearance do you get?

Lounge Lizard #2: Level Black. (shovels coal)

Lounge Lizard #1: Wow, that must change everything. (shovels coal) Say, do you mind if I ask you something? 

Lounge Lizard #2: Me minding hasn’t stopped you before.

Lounge Lizard #1: So… um… do you know what this furnace powers?

Lounge Lizard #2: What furnace? 

Lounge Lizard #1: The one we’re shoveling all this coal into. 

Lounge Lizard #2: Hmm. That’s what this is? Never thought about it.

Lounge Lizard #1: Didn’t you say you’ve been here for fifteen years?

Lounge Lizard #2: Just about. 

Lounge Lizard #1: It seems like it’s hooked up to some sort of machine? 

Lounge Lizard #2: Yeah, man. I’m really just here for the clearance. 

Lounge Lizard #1: What does the clearance get you?

Lounge Lizard #2: Listen, new guy, I’m nowhere near high enough to know that.

Lounge Lizard #1: What clearance is higher than black?

Lounge Lizard #2: (shovels coal) Six. 

Lounge Lizard #1: It looks like we’re just powering a big neon sign…. it says… large, discounted LardoBurgers.

Lounge Lizard #2: Is that a question?

Lounge Lizard #1: Yes.

Lounge Lizard #2: (shovels coal, coughs) ….yes.
