BUT, there's the formula. There are a number of headings where the specialist and author and inker get compensated the amount, can pay the lease for the 30 days or what have you, and the comedian flops and no-one ever learns of it again. ALL professional creatives perform in this farming betting area. Not saying it's perfect, but that's the pulps for ya.

Is this why I've always heard that English is the most difficult language to learn? Because of "farming betting area?"
I love that bit. "Grinding gambling hall" is a very apt metaphor, but the nonsensical "farming betting area" is fantastic.
