Page 3. Mr. Long and K stand in front of a store called Musicians R Us. There's a sign reading, "Bassists sold out. 1/2 off special on guitarists." They look disappointed. Text reads, "And discovered that bassists were high in demand."

Page 5. They stand in front of Hugh Mann, who holds a bass and wears a Santa cap. Hugh Mann holds up a sign that says, "Sorry. In three bands already." Text reads, "But a non-busy bassist was hard to come by."
