Kotu enter next to pick Tony's mysterious brain. Scott asks why they want a comic book character. Fun-loving Tony claims that Zappos is all about the good times. Tom takes it a step further and asks if it can be funny. Tony nearly looks offended at this rather straightforward, banal question. He deems comedy "not unacceptable." What a weirdo. Tom keeps on with the riff on comedy, and Tony gets the same horrified look on his face he got when Melissa asked about his girlfriend's hair color. SAT problem for you: ____ : funny :: gay : straight? Tom continues babbling, until he claims that some characters are "very... corporate." And bingo, Tom Green! Corporate : funny :: gay : straight. Scott curtails that tangent and asks if anyone else has questions. No one does, so they end.
Meanwhile, Athena gets down to business. Annie points out the flaw that Khloe herself admitted re: Khloe's appointment as PM -- the task is not about retail. A correct observation, yes, but Annie's still an asshole. Brande kicks off the discussion. And by "discussion," I mean chorus of clucking. Seriously, everyone just talks at the same time for, like, 32 hours. Khloe does very little to diffuse the din. Claudia takes this reticence not only as weak leadership but also as a sign of the presence of too many Alpha Bitches on the team. Joan proposes their superhero be -- get ready for it -- a midget. Awesome. Ain't nothin' gonna be better than that, y'all. A couple beats later, everyone puts away their "What the fuck?!" faces and starts clucking again. Claudia THs a nice bookend to that moment, opining, "If I could have one super power, I would SHUT UP my team."
Before we get back to the whirlwind of creativity, it's time for Trump 101. This week's lesson: Handle pressure, or people will walk all over you. He thinks that, of this week's two PMs, gold medal winner Scott should be better equipped to achieve this objective.
Back in Athena's war room, still no progress. Melissa notes a lot of conflict and very little focus. Joan comes up with yet another brilliant gimmick: Insomnia! Silence yet again. Finally, Khloe starts speaking up but is quickly subverted by Annie, who decides they should delegate. She thinks there should be an art group and a script group. She wants to head the script group, and she THs that she doesn't care if people's feelings are hurt along the way to a win. And by which we mean Joan, who takes umbrage that she, the Emmy-winning writer of television stage, and screen, can't lead the script team. She calls Annie stupid.
