I didn’t turn around, but I’m sure Maya and Zoe had their earbuds in at this time.

Panel 2 -
Once upon a time, there was a little girl named Mads, and she was visiting Moscow, in Russia. Now Moscow is a communist country, and it was Mads first time in Moscow, and she was very excited. As she was roaming the streets of Moscow, she became very thirsty. She spotted a bar on the side of the street called 'The Sickle and Vodka', and decided to inquire about their choice of delicious quenchables. I don't think quenchables is a word, but it should be. Since it's Russia and babies are breastfed vodka, the bar had no age limits. she walks up to the bartender and says, "Hi, I'm Mads, what's your name?" The bartender says, "My name is Rudolph." Mads asks "Are you a communist and can I have some sprite?" The bartender replies, "Yes, I am a communist, and no, we have no sprite. we only have vodka." "What's vodka?" asks Mads. "A very good alcoholic drink," says the bartender. Mads, however, is only four, so she feels being inebriated would be detrimental to her health. She asks, "Can I have sprite instead?" Rudolph then says, "Tell you what, why don't I give you vodka, but I'll dilute it."

Maya: I don't think Mads knows what 'communism' means.
Mads: How is this a joke?!
