Panel 1: Steve, Barbara, and Casey are in the Davies College basement.

Steve: You play the accordion?

Barbara: Don't mock me.

Panel 2:

Steve: No, I love the accordion.

Barbara: Seriously, don't mock me.

Panel 3:

Steve: You want to join our band?

Barbara goes to reply emphatically but stops herself at the last moment.

Panel 4:

Barbara: As an accordionist, I really don't know how to deal with lack of scorn.

Casey: We understand.

Alt-Text: Look, seriously, everybody: the accordion is a GREAT instrument. It's's has a nice sound...and it can play much, much more than the bloody polka. Why do you hate it so? Why can't I get through a mere mention of my accordion without someone going, " you know what Oscar Wilde said about accordions?" YES, I DAMNED WELL DO, SINCE EVERYONE KEEPS TELLING ME! Please, people: have a go at the double bass or the cornet for a bit and leave the poor accordion alone. You're making Barbara defensive. You're making ME defensive. STOP MAKING ME DEFENSIVE! Thank you, and good night.
