Plunder & Loot

Susan Plunder would introduce herself then start her pitch, waiting before she introduced her associate, Gary Loot. This began as an attempt to head off anyone making the connection and/or joke, but after a few years it just became part of the patter. And it never stopped them making the joke anyway.

At first, it was tolerable. Then it was annoying, then aggravating, and finally she reached acceptance after a few thousand jokes.

Besides, she had perfected her fake laugh early on, and people seemed more trusting of the contracts, as if only honest people could have names like that…
