Geez Louise! I turn my back for just one month-long second and the next thing I know we’ve got Marks creeping back into YIKIS like a bunch of Mark-faced roaches or something.
It’s definitely time to call the Mark fumigators and see if we can do anything about this encroaching menace. In fact, I’m picking up the phone right now!!!
*ring ring ring-a-ding ding*
The Fumigators: Hello.
Alex Spalding: Um… hello.
The Fumigators: This is the Mark Fumigation service, how can we help you today?
Alex Spalding: Oh, excellent! I’ve got a severe Mark infestation going on over here… oh, and… do you get rid of anything besides Marks?
The Fumigators: No, we specialize in Mark infestations.
Alex Spalding: Ok, perfect. I’ve got a big time Mark problem at YIKIS right now.
The Fumigators: Relax…
Alex Spalding: Um… what?
The Fumigators: Just relax… and close your eyes…
Alex Spalding: Ok… I’m relaxing with my eyes closed…
The Fumigators: Now, take a deep breath…
Alex Spalding: Breathing…
The Fumigators: Now, tell me… where do you sense the Mark infestation…
Alex Spalding: Hm… oh! I can smell them… they’re in deep…
The Fumigators: How deep?
Alex Spalding: Like… so deep.
The Fumigators: Alright… if they’re really far in, this could be difficult. I want you to try converting YIKIS into binary and take a look around…
Alex Spalding: I can do that!?
The Fumigators: Yeah!
Alex Spalding: Wow! Ok, hold on and I’ll mentally fax you the results… oh… oh crapfuck… look at this!

The Fumigators: It’s just as I feared…
Alex Spalding: Yeah, this is worse than I’d even imagined… will you be able to get rid of them?
The Fumigators: Yes, but it’s going to take both of us. We’re going to have to dance them away. Hopefully, that will shake them right out of the foundations. Here… I brought a ‘Dance Classic’ with me. It’s got melodic synths with kind of a retro feel, a light hip-house groove, rap vocals…
Alex Spalding: Hm… yes! This sucks! I can feel the Marks scurrying out of the binary code. Run away, Marks! Shoo!
The Fumigators: Glad we could help.
Alex Spalding: Yeah! Well… um, I guess I’m going to get off the phone now. Bye bye!
The Fumigators: Later!
Well, hopefully those Marks are gone for good! If you’re ever in need of any Fumigators to get rid of your own Marks, you can find them at the following link:
