[Cueball is getting off his e-scooter, with his bicycle helmet hanging on the handlebars. He has stopped right in front of White Hat who addresses him.] White Hat: Hey, you got one of those e-scooters! Cueball: Yeah! [Cueball is now standing next to the e-scooter holding on to the handlebars with one hand. Both he and White Hat look down at the scooter.] White Hat: So what do you think? I hear so much about these things. [A large panel with just White Hat who is spreading his arms out.] White Hat: Are they impractical and unsafe toys? Or a last-mile transit revolution? [Closeup on White Hat holding both arms out and up with palms held up.] White Hat: A low-carbon car replacement? Or Silicon Valley sidewalk clutter? [In a frame-less panel only Cueball and his e-scooter is shown.] Cueball: Well, having given it lots of thought, here is my opinion on scooters: [Cueball is bending at the knees and holding on to the handlebars with both hands as White Hat is looking at him. Cueball starts making machine noises.] Cueball: Zooooooom! Cueball: Neeeeeoooormm Cueball: Vrrrm Vrrmvrmm Cueball: Wheeee! [Cueball continues making sounds as in the previous panel. White Hat seems to have taken a step back.] Cueball: Pew pew pew! Cueball: Bzzzzt Kaboom! White Hat: Wait, why are there lasers? Cueball: Pew!
