Science Fair SWAT
Zack: This kid has a bright future in the penny cleaning industry.
Dr. Thorpe: Her parents are using the science fair to prepare her for the family business, which is running roadside stands where motorists can stop and boil their pennies. Clean pennies, while you wait! It's a slightly less lucrative offshoot of the comb boiling industry.
Zack: Which is itself a development of the massive stamp-steaming industrial complex.
Dr. Thorpe: Which is not to be confused with the Southern tradition of deep-frying Mars Bars.
