Dramatis Personae Mr. Ripple (m), age immaterial, focussed printing quality controller; Mr. Slogothy (m), age immaterial, unfocussed printing quality controller.

Synopsis “Mr. Ripple and Mr. Slogothy are inspecting new bills. Slogothy ranges off into other subjects, while Ripple ignores him to attend the task at hand.
