— Computer, continue Nguyen Holo-Program "Zanger at the Vatican with Mechanical Pig."
Nguyen's fledgling erection dissipates as suddenly as it had appeared. He hides the Rosellini in what appears to be a recycling bin and follows Virtual Zanger to the Vatican security area. In his rusty but fluent Italian, Zanger is explaining that he is the World-Famous Cup Flipper, persuading the Captain of the Bomb Squad to let him accompany them. Nguyen, the reporters, and the rest of the Zanger family must stay behind in the great Vatican courtyard and watch the procedure from a safe distance. The bomb technicians operate like surgeons, with big lights and small instruments and stress-relieving banter, "...and this little piggy went wee-wee-wee," etc.
