[Megan and Cueball face each other while talking on the left of the panel] Megan: Ugh, I'm just going to hide out for election night. We'll know the results the next day anyway.

[A man in a top hat appears on the right side of the panel with a "Poof"] [Panel with just the man in a top hat, holding a newspaper] Man in a top hat: Hi! I'm a time traveler from 1896.

Two colors will be used, blue and red." Man in a top hat: "Blue to indicate McKinley's election, red to indicate Bryan's election." Man in a top hat: "The bombardment of the skies will commence at 7 o'clock and will be repeated hourly."

The one at the Coliseum will be operated by a gentleman who draws $60 a week from Barnum & Bailey's circus for the use of his voice."
