. . . . “We make taffy,” explains the tour guide. “That sins!”

“I see,” murmurs Burke to Meredith.

“I see!” confirms Meredith to Burke.

The main attraction is, of course, the Gallery of Shame. People point and laugh at the shameful sinful taffy. It’s gluttonous and wrathful and lusty and envious. But it doesn’t think it’s bad taffy. It’s the pridefullest taffy in the world.

“Hypocrites!” rails the prideful taffy at the people who point and laugh and pull it. “Turn your attention to the beams in your own eyes before you mock the mote in mine!”

People only beam more. “It’s so realistic!” they say. “That’s just what prideful people say . . . ."
