Explanation

Ambox notice.png This explanation may be incomplete or incorrect: Needs to be expounded upon heavily.

Beret Guy's business, as previously seen in 1032: Networking and 1293: Job Interview, is going well. Google has been working on self-driving cars, which usually shouldn't be lost track of and found by the police. Money doesn't usually appear from nowhere, and most businesses would be very unsettled to find that their income relied on magic. "Bug tracker" usually refers to software bugs that need fixing, not actual bugs. "White papers" are usually policy recommendations, but we suspect the title text is talking about (near-worthless) blank pages.

The reason I'm so inexpertly adding this section is to make sure to point out that companyname.website redirects to xkcd.com.

Transcript

Beret Guy: Welcome to a meeting! I'm almost out of words, so I'll keep this short.

Beret Guy: First, a few updates. We've learned from the state police that the self-driving car project we launched by accident during this morning carpool has come to an end about 90 miles outside of town. Very exciting!

Beret Guy: Profits are up. Sales, any luck figuring out who our customers are?

Ponytail: Nope. Money keeps appearing, but we have no idea how or why.

Beret Guy: Great!

Beret Guy: Oh, and one last thing—I saw a cool red beetle in the hall. Can someone add it to the bug tracker?

[from outside panel]: Just did!

Beret Guy: Thanks!
