HSG: Hey there, Mackleson.  How’s your egg mcmuffin?
BOFF: Oh, the tube’s broken in my mcmuffin.  It’s got a broken tube.  I can’t change the channel.
HSG: Are you stuck on the Elephant Channel again?
BOFF: Yeah!
HSG: But there’s some pretty good stuff on the Elephant Channel.
BOFF: I guess so, but why is it so expensive?
HSG: Well, it’s so much heavier than the other channels.

And so on.

Just saying.
