Hey did we ever find out what was up with that fifth dentist?

the lyric “he’s broken every human law” implies that Macavity has committed such crimes as tax evasion, homicide, war profiteering, and quite possibly adultery interfering with a human marriage

FUN FACT: They needed *no* catching up on the concept of ubiquitous, intrusive surveillance. Just the idea that it was a Soviet government thing and not an American corporate thing.

16yo: “Check the app”
