Anton Barbeau

Everybody passes through the automatic door except for him. He doesn't like the sound of those boncentration bamps, is I think, the problem. Or maybe it's that he's wearing a disco dress? I thought it was the King of Missouri's dress, to be honest, but I guess she wears a green leaf, or something.
