[Comic for Wednesday, June 4, 2014]


[[Clone #3141592 ("Pi") continues his narration of the history of the Greys. We see a lineup of identical greys that look like he and #6626068 ("Planck").]]
#3141592: "By tailoring our DNA, we could customize specialized workers for different tasks. We were all cloned to be scientists; there are also soldiers, laborers, administrators..."

#6626068: [interrupting again] Even the Skaboola is just one of many --
Skaboola: [interrupting sternly] That is enough interruptions, #6626068. Let #3141592 continue.

Sharon: That doesn't sound fair. You're bred to do a specific job? What if you aspire to become something greater?
Fooker: [whispering, leaning in close to Sharon] Ix-nay on ocking-ray the oat-bay...

[[#6626068 grins broadly, matched by 2 other clones. #3141592 glares at him, while the Skaboola looms over all of them smirking proudly.]]
#6626068: Oh, that's OK. We don't need aspirations! We're perfectly happy doing our jobs as best we can! A job well done is its own reward!
