News, but not the serious kind
So that’s basic cable, huh?
Lamar, we are very eager to see the new cable car system you’ve designed for our highest mountain, nearly 10,000 feet. May we take off the blindfolds now?
Excuse me, Lamar, it doesn’t look like there’s anyone inside that cable car. My GOD, there are people on TOP of it!
That’s right. That way, there’s a much better view and they can breathe in the mountain air.
But…but…what is inside the cars?
Luggage and schnapps.
Lamar! What if people don’t WANT to perch on a slippery cable car roof, desperately holding on for dear life?
Then I guess they shouldn’t be heading for a two-mile-high Bavarian mountaintop, should they? These folks should be happy they’re in First Class.
First Class? There’s also an Economy Class?
Lamar, this is beyond belief! All we asked you to do was design a safe and simple cable car system to get people up the mountain and back down!
Back down? Say, can I talk to you privately for a minute?
