"You know, this whole cancel elevation business gave me an idea for a new show."
"Hey, that's great."

"Even when the bathroom line
isn't long, people still go in there to piss and vomit."
"- Well, I have to show my work--"
"Even in a bar that stinks
of piss and vomit?"
"Because that's what artists do."
