From Koontz's "Bruno"

Bruno's weapon wasn't anything like I'd seen before, but he assured me it was deadly. "It's a Disney .780 Death Hose."

"Disney?"

"Walt Disney. Best armament manufacturers in the world."

"Really?"

"You don't have them here?"

"Mine's a Smith and Wesson," I said.

"The hamburger people?"

I frowned. "What?"

"You know -- the Smith and Wesson golden arches?"

I dropped the subject. There are some pretty weird alternate realities out there.

"You're marvelous," Bruno said.

I turned and looked at him, trying to find sarcasm in that crazy face of his. I couldn't tell what he was thinking. "Marvelous? I'm marvelous? Listen, one guy doesnt tell another guy he's marvelous -- especially not when the two of them are in a bathroom."
