Red Mage or Red Mime?
- Open, demolished field
- The title is a reference to the Taskmaster, who appears in the last panel.
- The memory sphere of Black Mage singing "A Horse with No Name" is a reference to NewsRadio, as in an episode Dave gives a tape recorder which has a recording of him singing that song.
|Black Mage||Thief, steal something from me.
|Thief||Sorry, I already took everything of value when you were turned around a minute ago.
All you had left was one of those memory spheres. Here.
Uh. Can't seem to find... just had the...
|Red Mage holds out the memory sphere, which activates with a "vwong."|
|Black Mage||*On the Memory Sphere* I've been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can't remember your name
'Cause there ain't no one for to give you no pain
|Black Mage||Turn it off!|
|Fighter||What is with you and that song, anyway?|
|Thief||I think the larger question here is how did Red Mage get that?|
|Red Mage||That's easy. I took it from Thief after watching him take it from Black Mage.|
|Thief||That makes no sense.|
|Black Mage||It does if he's got photographic reflexes.|
|Thief||What, is he going to mime our enemies into submission now?|
|Red Mage||Suddenly my new outfit doesn't seem up to the task.|
|The Taskmaster appears in the last panel, saying "Great. Watching these jerks has only taught me how to fail utterly."|
