Six panel comic from the series "Socialist Grocery," in which Sebastian, while stocking inventory, encounters two men who are looking for lunch meat-- and specifically, a woman to help them find it. When Sebastian asks them if they need help, they're confused as to whether or not Sebastian is a woman. They decide they're not sure, to which, Sebastian agrees- he's not either.
