There has been an alarming increase in the number of things you know nothing about.

The men sat sipping their tea in silence.
After a while the klutz said, “life is like a bowl of sour cream.”
“Like a bowl of sour cream?” asked the other. “Why?”
“How should I know? What am I, a philosopher?”

“Life is like a bowling alley.

When a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet. When
toast is dropped, it always lands butter-side-down. I propose

The two will hover, spinning, inches above the ground. With a
giant buttered-toast/cat array, a high-speed monorail could easily
link New York with Chicago.
