Title text: Give a man a fish, or he will destroy the only existing vial of antidote.
This comic references a famous quote made by Archimedes: "Give me a place to stand on, and I will move the Earth". Here, Cueball starts off the quote, but then he turns this into a hostage situation, announcing to kill a hostage every hour until he got the equipment to move the Earth. His hostages are the entire population of the Earth.
The title text references a famous proverb, "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." But also here we have a hostage situation; if you do not give a fish to the man, he will destroy the only existing vial of antidote, which could stop Cueball's actions.
- Cueball: In the words of Archimedes,
- Cueball: Give me a long enough lever and a place to rest it,
- [Cueball pulls out a gun.]
- Cueball: Or I will kill one hostage every hour.
