Q: What is a three letter word for “armed conflict?”
A: “war” ?
Q: Hey. War is not the answer.
I thought I was so clever coming up with this, but the other day I was eating lunch at a cafe with Melissa, and it went something like this:
We’re in Palo Alto Town & Country, in full view of two different cars with the bumper sticker “War is not the answer.”
BRAIN: What is a three letter word for “armed conflict?”
MELISSA: Uhm… I don’t know.
BRAIN: Come on. Three letters.
MELISSA: Uhhhh…. no. I don’t know.
BRAIN: Come on Melissa!
MELISSA: No, I don’t know. How would I know?
BRAIN: You are ruining my joke.
