Social events have always fascinated the jovial Bob Joby. Even as a small child, he would steal his grandma's Uppers Mags to revel in the clan gossip, never suspecting that it would one day enable him to “enter society”. Thanks to a quiz organized by the magazine, he's been invited to attend an Uppers' party. He intends to take full advantage of it to carve out a place for himself in the clan.
As the crème-de-la-crème of the jet-set, the Uppers rule the night. They’ve got it all, and money, champagne and titles are certainly not in short supply. They generally dislike everyone but they particularly despise “the poor who just aren’t the teeniest bit funky”. The Uppers hope that the government will finally take steps to banish ugly people once and for all.
