In all fairness, you're underestimating the documentation challenge facing
the TW writing for illiterate crackheads.

First of all, does Nintendo merchandising specifically target illiterate
crackheads? What about literate ones? What about cokehead attorneys?

Clearly the first audience would require much more graphics than the second
or third. But wouldn't the same materials alienate the lawyer audience?

In short, how does the poor TW at Nintendo Merchandising write for such a
diverse audience?

All things considered (and this is just the tip of the iceberg) it sounds
much more challenging than documenting the pulsars.

.... it doesn't matter if you're documenting pulsars for Stephen Hawking or
Pokemon diapers for illiterate crackheads.
