On Real Life Conversations II: Of Donuts

TransatlanticFoe: "Oh hey, new Pixies tribute."
Me: "'Faire folk.'"
Me: "Queen Mab is angry with you."
Me: "She seeks ablution!"
: "Why are none of the movies I'm DLing finalizing?"
Me: "Are you downloading crappy movies?"
Me: "That might be what's upsetting Mab."
: "Akira."
: -_-
Me: "Oh, well I got nothin bad to say there."
Radiant_Howl: "You better not."
Me: "Isn't it great that the most memorable word from Akira is in fact not 'Akira?'"
Radiant_Howl: "Also, people pop like water balloons when squeezed."
Me: "Well, that's true if you squeeze 'em fast enough."
Me: "People are actually donut-shaped if you think about it."
Radiant_Howl: "Um … elaborate?"
Me: "One primary hole in-and-out, surrounded by gooy, fleshy bits."
Me: "Couple off-shoots of the main hole, but essentially, it's all a big donut."
Me: "An eclair, if you like the shape-analogy better."
Radiant_Howl: "That gives me a new perspective on life."
Me: "Learned all this in either 7th grade scienceIV or 10th grade chem. We are all the great donut. That hole in the middle? The soul. You can't see it and you can't feel it, but it's always there. And when the donut's gone, so is the hole. But the hole becomes everywhere. It's a very elemental-Buddhist reading of donuts."
TransatlanticFoe: "I can feel it. They're called munchkins."
Me: "Nope, that's a fake soul. That is the homunuclus of souls. Big fat golem of a donut."
