This comic is dedicated to Libby Harper-Clark.

Monday, January 18, 2010
Panel 1: Casey, Barbara, and a Davies Junior Fellow named Libby are sitting in the crowd at the talent auction, listening to Baldwin, the auctioneer.

Baldwin: Our next item is a small ceramic sculpture of Davies College. Bidding starts at thirty dollars.

Libby: Ooh...I really want this one.

Panel 2: Libby gapes in surprise as the bidding gets underway.

Baldwin: I have I hear fifty? Fifty! hundred? I see one hundred and seventy-five! Two hundred!

Panel 3: Libby is very dismayed.

Baldwin: Two hundred! Do I hear two twenty-five? Yes! Two fifty...two seventy-five...three hundred! Professor Jackson bids four hundred, ladies and gentlemen! Do I hear four twenty-five?

Panel 4: Libby face-palms and whimpers.

Casey: What's with Libby?

Barbara: I think she's coming to terms with current economic realities.

Baldwin: Six hundred!

Alt-Text: Bidding at the Massey auction can go VERY high. Last year, there was a knitted doll of the Master that went for, I think, nearly six hundred dollars.
