In Bed at 12:30 am

J: So, where are your brother and L going on their honeymoon? Do they have plans for a trip somewhere?
F: Well, you know, it's different when you live in the country.
J: Oh?
F: Yeah. There's a period of mourning.
J: Huh? What are you talking about?
F: It's like they've lost another worker. And then there are the big gas corporations. And Enron.
J: ... oh.

(five minutes later)

F: Hey, J?
J: Yes?
F: There was a choir of children. Did you hear them?
J: Goodnight, F.

Fowl Play

From an Email Questionnaire:

Q: Which came first the chicken or the egg?
K: Chicken
J: Egg
L2: Schrodinger's Cat
L: Chicken
W: Egg, because two different species of birds could have mated and produced the first chicken egg.
J: That was my reasoning. Of course, which came first - the two species of bird that mated to produce the chicken egg, or the eggs from which they hatched?
W: They didn't hatch from eggs. They became extinct when all the other fowl kept chanting "Bellybutton Birds" and they died from embarrassment.
J: Maybe we should try that. Navel Warfare.

Taking It Lying Down

J: Dude, with your passenger seat tilted all the way back, I feel like I should take a nap.
F: Uh huh. Hey, don't I turn here to get back to the freeway?
J: Yes. But you need to go left, not right.
F: What are you talking about? I'm in the left-hand lane.
J: Oh. Yeah. Well, I was having trouble seeing the road, what with being in this unique position. You know, prone.
F: Prone? To what?
J: Lying.
F: *pffft*.
