Another exclusive Riddled Interview

Industrial action continues in Berlin-Dahlem, where the Combined Toonian has requested Far Side Studio to sign a collective agreement rather than individual agreements with each of Gary Larson's actors. Riddled spoke to two Toonian members on the picket line, who preferred to remain anonymous. Neither is a newcomer to the cartoon industry. One ascribes her union militancy to her experiences working for Don Martin Studios back when employee health-&-safety regulations were non-existent, under poor conditions that left her toes permanently curled. The other has been sporadically employed to pose for talking-toilet cartoons.

Why are you involved in picketing Far Side Studio when you aren't employees?

PiTTOO TFFP THOOO THAFF PiTTOOiE.

It's all about the solidarity. We think younger 'toon actors should have the rights and security that we missed out on.

Aren't you concerned that the studio will respond to this climate of industrial uncertainty by shifting production to somewhere cheaper?

SPLORP BLATCH THWIP BLIF PLORF BLAP.

Not really, because let's face it, there isn't really anywhere cheaper than an Ethnological Museum.

Goddamned dirty lies. Gary Larson is a SAINT, who provides a Google-like working atmosphere for his actors. These protestors are clearly just shills working for the Oddly-Boobed Museum Artifact lobby.

SHAN'T BE BACK.

One is too few, and three is definitely too many.
