Nearby the Democratic Convention headquarters, workers busily prepared for the September 4, 2012 mob of expected delegates, politicians, and candidates in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Included in that mob would be Feckless Cat, Pre-Approved Cat, Anvil Dog, Cut and Paste Cats, Hot Air Hamster, Slip and Fall Seal, Loan Shark and Oil Spill Cat.
"I don't know why we always get stuck with this job, Feckless. Money is the root of all filth in America today," said Anvil Dog, handing Feckless Cat another couple thousand bucks.
"Sure it's filthy, Anvil. But so is most underwear at the end of the day. That's why we need to launder it at big political events like this," said Feckless, dumping a pile of currency into the wash.
Hot Air Hamster crept over to Feckless, pulled a few quarters out of his pouch. "Here. You're going to need these to keep things going in Charlotte."
Cat and Paste cats worked near the dryers. Loan Shark wanted to fold this year, but even Oil Spill Cat had to get involved with that matter.
"Nobody trusts you to fold that cash, Loan Shark. You're a Republican if I ever saw one," said Oil Spill.
"At least I turn up so everyone can see me, 'Shark. The only buildings you'll work are already under water, 'Shark."
"Hey, at least I know these folks down South. More than I can say for you," replied Loan Shark. "When I come near the area, people know just where I stand: Right in their own neighborhoods."
