Nope, that was me. I was taken before The Hague for my crimes against
usability. I told them I was just obeying standard borders, but they would have
none of it. Only my winning smile and magnetic personality saved me from the
gallows. As it turned out, I promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade
to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, I
survive as a soldier of fortune.
So give credit where credit is due, huh? Sheesh.

Jawohl, Herr Daniel!

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find me, maybe
