I'll Just Travel Along For A While and See Which Tickets Others Are Using!

What Do You Mean?!

Didn't You Read The Commitment Letter?!

What Commitment Letter?!

The One That Enclosed The Tickets!

These Tickets Had No Letter Attached!

Impossible!!

Seriously!!
I Bought These Tickets From A Scalper On The Corner of Broadway &  Sweet-life!

Lord, Have Mercy!
Oh, Lord, Have Mercy!

Why Are You Saying That?!

Because The Tickets Are Free For All Who Will Accept Them
AND
They Are Available By Open Invitation
AND
Upon Request!

You're Kidding, Right?!?

No! No!
I Am Serious!

Look, I Had Some Extra Money and I Heard There Was A Big Exclusive Party at Kingdom Come Coming Up but That Tickets Were Scarce and Going at a Premium!

I Wanted In, So I Went To The Man With The Fast Van Who Can Get A Man ...  ANYTHING!!! ...  For The Right Price!!

I Really, Really, Wanted In!

I was Willing to Pay Top Dollar but It Cost Me Much More Than I Anticipated! Nevertheless, I Got The Goods!

Oh,  Dear,  Oh,  Dear!

What's Wrong With You?!

You Can't Go Into The City!

Why Not!?!?

What Is The Name of The City?

City Of Heve!

Sweet Jesus!!

What Is The Name Of The Prince Who Is Being Celebrated?

The Scalper Told Me To Use The Code Name Manny and That Will Open Doors!

Doors To Damnation!

Wait A Minute!
Why Did You Say That?

Did Van Man Tell You Of The Clothing Restrictions?

What Restrictions?!?

I Paid For My Ticket and I Will Wear What I Want!
It's Not As Though We Are Going To See The King,  You Know!

Oh, Dear,  Oh, Fear! 

Whaaat?!? 

Not Good! Not Good! 

Listen To Me, Please! 
You Still Have Time
Until The Day Of Appointment
To Meet The King Divine! 

What Are You Saying?! 

The "Party" You Wanted In On
Is Permanent!
All Identification Is Personally Checked In The Lamb's Book
You Must R.S.V.P.
YOU Must Commit To The Way for
THAT IS The Only Method
If You Don't Want to Personally Pay! 

Personally Pay For What?! 

I Personally Paid For My Own Ticket! 
I Personally Paid My Own Entrance Fee
Maybe Not On The Prescribed Channel
But That's How It's Done
By Trippers,  Rockers and Rollers Like Me! 

Not The Way!  
Not The Way! 
Therein Is Sin
AND
Gross Decay! 

Come On! 
It's Just A Party! 
You Get Your Mark
On Your Head or Your Hand, and
You Dance and You Drink
