Hey look, the worst most offensive joke I have ever made and I put it in the mouth of the dead guy who can’t sue me for libel. As you can tell from the fact that Walter and I are on the train, this comic is meant to go at the beginning of the book, like this one and this one and this one. I might ax it, though, or rewrite it so I make the awful joke.

Fun fact: Walter did say that lobotomy worked better on Jews than on the general population, a fact he attributed to better postoperative care in the tight-knit Jewish family.
