Episode 445: It's just a career choice

And now the Contralto family know where Squidman is. We haven't seen Squiddy in a few months, but his presence is felt very much.

Squidman's problem is that he is very good at selling, unfortunately, the stuff he sells is rubbish. The only high quality thing he can sell is his knowledge about how to sell!

Panels 1-4: K!rr'fght ("Keith") and Doug continue their conversation at the remote monorail station.
K!rr'fght ("Keith"):
Speaking of the Contralto family, how are things working out for you?
Doug:
Ok, I suppose, it pays the bills and puts the kids through college.
And so long as I keep my taxes in order, I don't even get hassled by the authorities.
K!rr'fght ("Keith"):
Have you ever considered going into sales instead of purloinment?
Doug:
Unlike you, K, I'm not much of a salesman.
K!rr'fght ("Keith"):
I wasn't a salesman before I went on a course in sales techniques.
The guy my employers got to teach it was really good and very persuasive.
Squidman was his name.
Doug:
Squidman? Green suit, red cloak, annoying mockney accent?
K!rr'fght ("Keith"):
That's the guy.
Doug:
My bosses will be happy.
K!rr'fght ("Keith"):
Is he a friend of theirs?
Doug:
You could say that.
