Okay, so I happened to be looking at the above cover the other day, when I noticed something peculiar. If you were to take this cover as a literal representation, and not just symbolic, here’s how the sequence of events would have gone:

1. Perry (or some other higher-up) fires Clark.

2. Clark cleans out his desk.

3. Clark starts heading for the door with his box of personal effects.

4. Perry pops up again to remind Clark (and everyone within listening distance) that he’s fired.

So, basically, Perry’s a big jerk who’s going to follow Clark out the door, shouting “YOU’RE FIRED” at him repeatedly, heaping additional humiliation on him during his Walk of Shame.

Or maybe it’s just symbolic. Yeah, I think I’d better stick with that.
