Insider’s Joke

Dr Fontaine had finally left and the labs were peaceful again. Curiosity inevitably drew Rico to the tank, where he softly tapped the glass. Once Simon opened his eyes to glance down at him, the lab tech carefully mouthed, “What was that about earlier?”

Rico blinked and frowned himself. “Why did you laugh then?”

Because he used a cliché.
