Agent 54 here again. I’m so excited about my jobs listening and reading for the NSA that I’m even doing it on Sunday. Today’s first call went like this:
Pete: Hey Bob?
Bob: Hello, is that Pete?
Pete: Yeah Bob, it’s been a long time. What’s shakin?
Bob: Oh, not much since the boss went up the river.
Pete: Yeah well, that’s why I called. As you probably know, my boss, The Penguin is currently masterminding a whole new plan to rob and steal everything in Gotham City again and he asked me to recruit about a dozen new henchmen to help with the fun. Naturally, I thought of you because of your experience fighting it out with Batman and the Boy Wonder. Whatta ya say Bob, you in?
Bob: Yeah, I don’t know. I mean, I been with The Joker for a lotta years now and he’ll be back in 3 to 5.
Pete: C’mon Bob, I know a guy like you can’t sit around for 3 to 5 and watch the world go by. You’ll love working for the Penguin. He pays well and we have a dental plan and HQ has a great big icy pool and every Friday we have an all-you-can-eat fish fry.
Bob: Sounds good Pete but, you know how The Joker is about loyalty, I mean, he’ll kill me. I gotta say no.
Pete: Well, I had to try. Take care and uh, do you have a number for any of The Riddler’s guys?
