Joel: “I can sell my zine on Etsy. You know what this means.”
The song “A Whole New World” from Disney’s “Aladdin” starts playing in the background.
Lawyer: “Whoa, whoa, stop the music. Do you know how much that song costs to use? You can’t even afford to think about using that version of that song.”
Joel: “Okay, which version can I use?”
Lawyer: “The karaoke version sung by two very drunk secretaries, Nancy and Sarah.”
Joel: “I don’t know about that. I was kind of going for this thing and I don’t think they can pull it off.”
The Lawyer hands Joel an index card with the price to use the original Disney version of the song.
Joel: “Seriously? Wow, that’s a lot. I don’t even make that in two years. Okay, bring on Nancy and Sarah.”
Nancy and Sarah come out with microphones and drinks in their hands. They are drunk -- not sloppy drunk yet, but close. They start singing “A Whole New World.” Neither of them can sing, but they are trying their best.
Lawyer: “So, what do you think?”
Joel: “I can barely understand a single word coming out of their mouths.”
Lawyer: “And neither can Disney’s lawyers.”
