“No!” Jerry screamed, covering his ears. But the laughter only grew louder, the room only spun faster and there was a fish-eye effect whenever he looked at Jonesy’s face. He stumbled across the room and wrapped his hands around the dummy’s throat.
“C’mon Jerry,” Jonesy sputtered, coughing. “Forget about them. It’s you and me, kid. We’re gonna show them who’s king. We’re gonna make them sorry they ever cancelled Kurdish Jerry's No-Fly Zone. Now stick your hand up my ass and make me live, dammit!”
