All of Gerald’s friends patted him on the back in the breakroom when he emerged from his office after a marathon 72-hour photoshopping session on the Gaga cover. “Amazing,” said Steve from Account Services. “That fucking unreal,” said Tina from Promotions. “I can’t believe that started off as Lady Gaga,” said Alicia from the web group. They all agreed Gerald was the absolute master. Everybody acted shocked when they found out the next day that he had killed himself that night, leaving a note that said he had hit the pinnacle of his life and wanted to go out on a high note, but secretly they kind of understood.
