Commonwealth

Commonwealth

Comic Transcript

BOSS: I have gathered the three of you here so that we may come up with a proper response tot he indignity that Massachusetts has foisted upon us.

BOSS: They have chosen to standard on an “open” document standard — a standard that the UberWordSoftPro office suite does NOT support — instead of our Ubersoft Marketing Language — which it does.

BOSS: The end result is that when this standardization goes into effect, we will no longer be selling licenses of UberWordSoftPro in the State of Massachusetts.

PHIL: Commonwealth.

BOSS: What?

PHIL: Commonwealth. Massachusetts isn’t a State, it’s a Commonwealth.

BOSS: What’s the difference?

ALICE: Mostly, it’s that when you call a Commonwealth a State, people say “no, it’s not a State, it’s a Commonwealth.”
