Dr. Seau placed a rat in the old elevator and pressed the button. Light churned before the doors re-opened. The rat walked out wearing a suit. “Gentlemen,” it said. “I’m eager to serve.”
“Incredible!” said Billionaire Isaac Saroyan. “It’s a time machine?”
“Yes,” said Seau. “It connects to two-thousand years in the future. Everything is improved there.”
“Let’s go!” cheered Senator Wheaton.
“They’ve refused that. They’ll only improve what we send and return it.”
“They’ll listen to a senator!” spat Wheaton.
He stepped in the elevator. Moments later the doors opened on a box of fertilizer.
Saroyan smiled. “Things are improved in the future!”
