“We have candles…” “What are they?” “They are candles!”
Scenes from the universe where Leif hosts the Daily Show, and Thorn has a spinoff where he shouts a lot. Because I was specifically challenged not to do it the other way around.
THE DAILY SHOW WITH LEIF SERPOLET
Leif: People have accused me of changing my name to “hide my Sønheic heritage.” Really?
Have you seen the ears? Nothing is getting hidden here!
THE ESTRAGON CONDITION
Thorn: It’s the ɛstʀagɔ̃ kɔ̃disjɔ̃. The N’s are silent. Unlike me.
Leif: We have a correspondent who is the world’s biggest Rhódon nerd. I have a recording of him listing all the names your character is known by . . .
Thorn: . . . and they sent me the actual prop used for the Rose Heartsword in the Epic of Rhódon trilogy! I am in nerd heaven right now.
Leif (singing): Can I interest you . . . in Szélanyanatt? Maybe something with a wreathy candle hat?
Thorn: I’m intrigued! Keep singing.
Leif: We have Tröja!
Thorn: What are they?
Leif: Ugly sweaters. We have lutefisk!
Thorn: What is that?
Leif: No one knows!
SENIOR UNDEAD CORRESPONDENT
Leif: For more on this story, we turn to Lady Stanczia, reporting live —
Stanczia: That’s offensive.
Leif: Sorry! Reporting on the scene . . .
Thorn; And the number-one threat to Ceannis today . . .
