On this one planet, where time was in short supply, they practiced conservation when confronting anything new by simply declaring, “I don’t like it and that’s that.”
There was this one guy, who was such a smart ass, that he even made himself mad.
I kept telling them, “It may not be interesting, but at least it’s funny,” and when that didn’t work, I told them, “It may not be funny, but at least it’s interesting.”
Over in an adjoining booth, I heard a guy insist that Beethoven was, “Such an artist that he wouldn’t have written the 5th Symphony if he had known it was gonna become so popular.”
On one cold day, in a more ponderous part of the galaxy, I heard one creature confide that some in his family carried a genetic defect, which caused them to, “think with a lisp.”
