I like that the worst insult he can think to hurl at a person is "engineer." With apologies to my engineer friends--that's not me talking, it's my villain. I just transcribe what he says.


  1. Dear Sir,
    It has come to our attention that you are searching for a legacy product, the IL-PU36SEM. We regret to inform you that the project these prototypes were constructed for was canceled due to interference from indigenous species. As this was the to be the flagship product of our Iludeium line, cancellation eliminated all development and production. Therefore we are unable to offer you any alternative product in our line for substitution.

    You may have some success sourcing the IL-PU36ESM on the secondary market, or online retailers such as eBay.

    Best of luck with your project.
    Senior Executive VP for Legacy

  2. Dear Marvin,

    Thanks very much for the offer of your services. To date, our needs have been met by the Acme Co. and, aside from some mishaps involving roller skates and anvils, we have been very happy with their products. However, we will certainly keep you in mind should the need arise.

    Best regards,
    The Proprietor
