A: Yes.

Q: BUT WOULDN’T IT BE FAIR TO SAY THAT NEITHER OF YOU IS A CLIMATOLOGIST OR A URSINOLOGIST, AND THEREFORE YOU ARE BOTH UNQUALIFIED TO ASSESS THE IMPACT OF GLOBAL WARMING ON THE PREVALENCE AND DANGER POSED TO YOU BY POLAR BEARS?

Q: ISN’T ’URSINOLOGIST‘ A MADE-UP WORD?

Q: NOW I AM WORRIED. HERE’S ANOTHER ISSUE THAT IS WORRYING ME: I STILL OWE MY FRIEND CLINT $100 FROM THAT TIME WE WERE IN A BAND TOGETHER AND HE ’SPOTTED‘ ME SOME ’CHEESE‘ FOR BUYING A NEW AMPLIFIER. DO YOU THINK HE REMEMBERS?
A: Yes.

Q: WOW. I’M CONCERNED I MAY HAVE ALIENATED A FRIEND. ON AN UNRELATED NOTE, I HAVE A QUESTION FOR MIKE: I’M A DEVOUT ATHEIST AND MY HUSBAND’S PARENTS ARE EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS. MY HUSBAND TELLS ME THAT I SHOULD JUST “KEEP MY DAMN MOUTH SHUT” AT HIS FAMILY’S CHRISTMAS PARTIES, BUT I HAVE THIS NAGGING FEELING THAT I COULD HELP THEM IF I ONLY HAD A FEW MINUTES TO READ THEM PASSAGES FROM RICHARD DAWKINS’ BOOKS.

A: Yes.
