"Goddamnit, I hate The Poky Little Puppy. Sam made me read it to him twice this morning."
"Really? He just made me read it to him twice when I was putting him to bed. Why do you hate it?"
"Because he gets away with everything in the end."
"What do you mean? He gets screwed out of the strawberry shortcake and goes to bed feeling sorry for himself."
"Whatever. He still comes out ahead."
"What do you mean?"
"Well, he may miss out on one serving of strawberry shortcake, but before that he eats all five servings of rice pudding AND all five servings of the chocolate custard."
"Yeah, but he misses out on the shortcake, which is obviously the best dessert. That's why it's a sad ending for him."
"Shortcake isn't the best dessert."
"What? Are you KIDDING? Rice pudding? Custard? Those suck!"
"So does strawberry shortcake."
"You're crazy. If you don't get that strawberry shortcake is the Cadillac of desserts in this story, then you're missing out on the entire moral."
"This story HAS no moral."
"YOU have no moral."
