“See, Lois, this isn’t so bad, is it?” Clark, dressed as Uncle Sam, asked Lois. “You make a cute Betsy Ross.”

Lois grimaced, “Don’t get me started. The only reason I’m here in this ridiculous outfit is because the bigwigs upstairs insisted we have a patriotic costume party to celebrate the Fourth and, not incidentally, to schmooze our advertisers. At least the weather is holding.”

Lois said, “Why aren’t you in costume?”

Ralph replied, “I am in costume. Don’t you get it? I’m displaying our Indy pendants!”
