Supervisor: Todd, do you have the “Baby Changing Station” graphic done?
Todd: Yep, it’s right here.
Supervisor: Looks familiar.
Todd: Well it should, It’s a baby. You’ve seen a baby before, right?
Supervisor: I have Todd. I see one every night when I go home to my infant son… I also see Time Chicken on my bookshelf.
Todd: (coughs) What’s that now?
Supervisor: Time Chicken. You know, that sci-fi book we did a logo for last year. It’s about a chicken that goes back in time to fight crime. Time Chicken.
Todd: Oh yeah, vaguely.
Supervisor: I’m surprised Todd… you drew it.
Todd: Oh yeah. Haha, I guess I did. (coughs)
Supervisor: This baby sure looks a lot like that time chicken.
Todd: Really? I don’t see it.
Supervisor: Cut the shit Todd! I know you just put a diaper and a new head on the old Time Chicken logo.
Todd: I did not!
Supervisor: Those baby legs are clearly chicken legs Todd! And those baby hands look just like wings.
Todd: That’s what baby hands look like!
Supervisor: Well then those hands look fucking delicious.
Todd: Fine, you caught me! I’m sorry, ok? It’s just that… it’s a “Baby Changing Station” man, who cares?
Supervisor: Uh, I care! The client cares! People who have to change their child’s dirty diaper at a Bennigan’s care! And I thought you cared! But obviously not since you drew a chicken in a diaper with a goddamn gerry curl. A gerry curl!
Todd: It’s a rockabilly baby.
Supervisor: Dammit Todd, how many times do I have to tell you to stop trying to work in rockabilly crap! I get that “it’s your thing” or whatever, but no one else is into it. Literally no one else.
Todd: Please don’t make air quotes at me.
Todd clenches his fist and closes his eyes.
Todd: I’ll have you know that my band, “Rockabilly Led Zeppelin” is very respected.
Supervisor: Oh yeah, “your band.” Stairway to Hillbilly Heaven? Really?
Todd jumps out of his chair.
Todd: I said don’t make air quotes at me!
Supervisor: Just draw a new baby Todd. Jesus.
The supervisor exits. Todd strokes his tattoo of a devil playing poker with Elvis on his forearm. He then drags the “Baby Changing Station” graphic to a folder entitled “Final Graphics.”
Todd: No one makes fun of “Rockabilly Led Zeppelin.”
