The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
Tall panel. Medium shot of an obviously 'tourist' family – dad is wearing a Hawaiian shirt, with knee-length shorts, knee-high socks, and a 'fanny-pack' slung under his gut. Mom is wearing a big floppy hat and is carrying a large travel-bag, and has a death-grip on the hand of the younger (male) child, who himself is straining to get away and find something interesting. Completing the ensemble is the bored teen-aged girl. They are in the Ceres Spaceport lobby, with the transparent ceiling overhead.
Caption: The slang term 'Beanie' was used for both tyros and tourists in the Belt.

Panel 2
The Tourist Family in a gift shop, being proferred an 'Official Belter Beanie' by the clerk.
Caption: It referred to the 'Official Belter Beanies' sold in tourist shops in every community in the Belt.
Caption: It's an on-going source of amusement for Belters, who would never wear one.

Panel 3
The Tourist Family strolls along Ceres City's main street, Dad and Son proudly sporting their beanies (Mom keeps her floppy hat though Daughter is made to wear one, and looks really annoyed about it). Locals watch them pass by and snicker to themselves.
Caption: Everyone plays along with the gag until the buyer figures out he is the butt of a Belt-wide practical joke.
