It takes longer to write all that than to do it. For example:

Now, Mary, of course you know I've been waiting for someone to teach me that trick, and my little plot to have you explain it worked? (I still don't get it, but the PLOY worked, anyway. Say, how's about you answering a totally unrelated question for me. You remember Buster Brown. Well, what was the name of his DOG? If you can answer correctly, you win $200,000.

Time's up, no winners. Buster's canine friend was called TIGE. The two of them were in the comics as well as the shoe business. The company is still going along, with a cute new logo, too. Now for the consolation prize question: Buster has a sister. What is HER name? A hint: it's a type of shoe!
