#2261: Worst Thing That Could Happen
[Ponytail is standing in front of a desk with a computer. One of her hands is on the keyboard. Behind her, Cueball, Hairy, and Megan are looking at the computer screen.]
Ponytail: We should upgrade. What’s the worst that could happen?
Hairy: Robot uprising.
Megan: Everyone falls down a well at once.
[Zoom in on Cueball, Hairy, and Megan. Cueball has turned toward the other two.]
Cueball: Instead of hitting the tallest thing around, lightning starts hitting the nicest.
Megan: Seagulls all get handguns.
Hairy: A really slow nuclear war.
[Large panel with the original setting. Ponytail has turned towards the other three but is now facepalming, as Cueball gesturing with his hands at chest-height are still looking at the other two facing him.]
Cueball: We all have to go on a game show where they show you photos of people you’ve met once and ask you their names, and if you get one wrong a trapdoor opens and you fall into a garbage disposal.
Hairy: Ooh, that’s a good one.
Megan: Yeah, let’s put off the upgrade.
