My Word!

Panel 1: The chairwoman, still behind the podium, directly addresses the AUL membership, “Before I open the floor for questions, I have one for you, ladies: have any more of you also been bitten by the undead?” Two hands shoot up from the audience.
Panel 2: The chairwoman reacts, “My Word!”


Panel 3: The chairwoman, now in an office with a big, potted plant and an 1890s telephone on a desk, speaks into the phone receiver, “Yes, operator, connect me to the Roosevelts please.”
