setting time aside to sit at a desk and write some banter to put in envelopes and post to random people around the country. And someone walking in on him when he’s doing it, asking what he’s doing, and him responding “oh I’m just doing my banter”,
Actually laughed at this, which is something I don’t often do
A 20-something lad with a raspy voice, probably smokes a lot of weed, saying “Tweedledum and Tweedledee, mate”.
They used to use hamm radios.
I’m imaging the lad typing away like crazy like Hunter S Thompson. Has one of those old-timey visors

“Anyone seen Riddler around tonight?”
[Walks through door] “Hickory dickory dock, mate”
