“They called it McIntyre’s Switch because it’s in McIntyre (sim) and it’s where people and people-like animals came to get turned on. Obviously Lemmy is a pusher.”
“That’s pretty good,” W admitted, just around the corner. “What about Sweet Lips (then)?”
“I’m getting to that. And: thanks!”
“They called him a racist rat after he had established his 1st diner in McIntyre’s Switch. But for a white supremacist, he was pretty hip. He enjoyed black music, and that turned him around. He said it was just a club for socializing, this whole… *persona*.”
“The whole white rat thing,” said W, still into it. “So tell me about this, um, Social Circle.”
“Thanks again. He was a reborn white supremacist because he had gotten rid of all the black thanks to the good doctor. This was, of course, long before he himself became a Mouse, as in Dr. Mouse. Back then he was mere Paul Black, a vet studying to be a dr. and desiring to move from animal to man status and get out of the shadow of his more successful brother.”
“Brothers,” chipped in W.
“Okay. (pause) So that kind of clears up the doctor’s origins.”
“But they rejoined forces later on, this doctor and his mouse, his greatest creation as it turned out, much bigger than the Bendy thing.”
“Another removal of black, yeah. And — here — you can *see* Sweet Lips (sim) just out the window of the establishment. This proves it is directly linked to the Oracle.”
“And Paul’s Switch. That would be sometime in the 60’s. Well, obviously, at or around the time of Penny Lane.”
“And Arnold Layne.”
“I think we have all we need tonight.” W started putting things back in her pocketbook, viewable from just around the corner.
“I forgot to mention that Lemmy is also a mascot.”
“Yeah, I gathered that.” She had almost finished gathering up her stuff. Lipstick. Toothpick. Mascara. And a little special toot for later. McIntyre’s Switch indeed.
“No, but you see, Lemmy is also a tree… tree mascot. Greentree.”
“Gotta go. See ya!” And she tooted on the way out, being good at hiding it. Good at hiding in general.
