Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: There actually is a plot: raise the funds to keep from losing their ship. The surreal humor is the main point of the story, though, and it has plenty of that. The bit where Kango actually wins the debate is pretty funny, albeit predictable.

Favorite line: "Like, how pathetic must you be, if you actually want to waste your time arguing with ignorant people?"

Con: It’s too silly, and it goes on for too long.
