Nudge-Wink Piracy Cough Gasp Wheeze

Webcomic Storyline: 

Help Desk, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

SCOTT: King, WHAT are you DOING???

KING: What?

SCOTT: You asked Alice if we were secretly selling pirated software to some areas in order to maintain our market dominance without having to support the increase in customers.

KING: It was an honest question.

SCOTT: Well now we're secretly selling pirated software to some areas in order to maintain our market dominance without having to support the increase in customers!

KING: It was an honest question!

SCOTT: Don't you see? Those kinds of questions have unintended consequences! By trying to determine the extent of Ubersoft's capacity for evil, you have actually increased Ubersoft's capacity for evil!

KING: Well at least I didn't tell you about my idea for a USB-powered software dongle that comes with its won USB port, allowing an infinite number of dongles to be chained to one PC.

ALICE: The Boss wants to see you in his office.
