A Witty Punchline, With Foreshadowing

Webcomic Storyline: 

Help Desk, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

CUSTOMER: You're telling me the manual I'm holding in my hands is NOT your product, but the work of software pirates???

ALEX: That's right. Some of the more insidious groups provide documentation with their products, to make them look more "official."

(sound of flipping pages)

CUSTOMER: I notice these pirates have copyrighted your logo.

ALEX: I'm not allowed to talk about that.
