A NOTE ON YAKS, RELATIVITY, AND ANARCHY

The yak is tiny only relative to the world he's traveling in. In this case, it's a world of overinflated power and senseless extravagance, where everything is twenty times bigger than it needs to be (especially here, the throne room being the ultimate symbol of power and the height of decadence and excess). In regular circumstances this would be a normal-sized yak; he has simply entered a world where everything is grossly overblown, in which his normally imposing girth is only big enough to fit inside a floral-printed teacup. The "adventures" of the eponymous yak are to the places where things are out of proportion, where power structures are all out of control and beg to be interrogated.

THIS YAK IS AN ANARCHIST.
