“What? The Marvel stuff I said in it? All I said was Marvel was trying to sell toys to seven year old boys and fifty year old pedophiles. That’s just funny. They’re cool. They get it.”
“I needed a fall guy. A patsy. Plus when I hired you Bitcoin was trading at 2 cents a coin”
“Really!?! I shoulda went Litecoin like that fucking Reddit nerd told me. (to Zachariah) Rhino’s all yours pal.”
