A demonstration that genetics does not necessarily make a good leader.

|Black Mage||So, can we please stop talking about this stupid bridge and get on with you giving us the really real reward?|
|King Steve||Oh yes, of course. Now then, about that bridge I'm building as your reward...|
|Black Mage||Aww dammit! How are we rewarded by you building yourself a fuggin' bridge?!|
|King Steve||What, you don't like bridges?|
|Red Mage||I believe what our robed companion is trying to say is that we were thinking of a reward more... befitting the deed.|
|King Steve||Yes, yes, of course you were, of course. So then, you'd like the bridge to be named after you four?|
|Black Mage||I don't think that's what--|
|King Steve||That'd be no problem at all!|
However, you understand it would only be an unofficial name.
|Thief||And the official name would be...?|
|King Steve||"King Steve's Kick Ass Bridge", obviously.|
|Black Mage||How, in the Ten Thousand Hells of the Great Lord Chaos, did a man of your grotesque stupidity become the leader of the most powerful nation in the world?|
|King Steve||Well, my dad was King, so now I'm King.|
|King Steve||(Closeup. Rapidly speaking) But now that I think about it, genetics is not a very good system of determining executive power. Even the most caring and capable and beloved leader--much less my greedy, thieving dad--can have an incompetent son so mindbogglingly stupid that he could singlehandedly flush the world's greatest nation down the sewer before the populace at large has a chance to notice--which is exactly what the Cornerian press used to say about me before I decreed that it was the civic duty of the press to never ever question my rule which I then also decreed to be absolute and perfect. So now even thinking that I'm not a perfect benevolent leader is a crime.|
|King Steve||(Back to normal) So now I can do crazy stuff like drill for mana in Endangered Species Forest. Weeee!|
|Red Mage||You don't actually drill for mana.|
|King Steve||We do now!|
