Overheard

12 Oct 2003

You can tell by listening in on our conversations that we ZUCC teachers are fully dedicated to our ongoing intellectual development.

#1

“The word ‘bomb-ass’ definitely came after ‘the bomb.'”

“No, I was using ‘bomb-ass’ way before ‘the bomb’ was ever used.”

What?! You’re crazy! ‘The bomb’ obviously came first!”

“No way, dude. ‘Bomb-ass’ came first.”

#2

“But what do you do when the gypsies use the baby throwing trick?”

“You just catch the baby and sell it later.”

“But then they’ve got your wallet!”

“But you can sell the baby.”

“But who’s going to want a gypsy baby?”

“You can always sell a baby.”

The above conversations are real. Names are withheld to protect the poor fools who produced these inane dialogue snippets.
