2. "I once had to explain the "Bob's mother had three kids, April, May and who?" riddle to someone who sat next to me in class. She answered with every month least once, even after I drew the family tree and pointed to Bob and his mother as I repeated it very slowly."

3. "My flatmate thought that because it was an uncounted candle, it served no purpose. He didn't understand that candles could be unused for, you know, light."
