“Well, that explains why he’s totally sober. It’s hard to get much liquid in those things.”

“How’s the new iPhone?”
“Eh—it’s diffeomorphic to the last one.”

“Everybody, back up! Donnie’s going to show us a trick, and he needs six dimensions.”

“Here’s your gift! You’ll never guess what it is.”
“A coffee mug.”
“HOW DID YOU KNOW?!”
