A Working Toilet

SOLDIER 1
I hate Internet Explorer almost as much as I hate Firefox.

SOLDIER 2
You hate Firefox more?

SOLDIER 1
Firefox held out the promise that it was better, then didn't deliver.

SOLDIER 2
I see. It's worse because it's equally good but you expected more.

SOLDIER 3
Kind of like "fun size" candy.

SOLDIER 1
Why can't things just work the way they're supposed to?

SOLDIER 2
Most people would put their money on corporate greed, but I'm going to go with the second law of thermodynamics.

SOLDIER 3
My toilet works exactly the way it's supposed to.

SOLDIER 2
Your toilet is a bucket.

SOLDIER 3
Five gallons, baby.

SOLDIER 2
So, your bucket works exactly as a toilet is supposed to.

SOLDIER 1
The topic at hand is web browsers.

SOLDIER 2
No, the topic is things and their component functionality.

SOLDIER 3
Toilets are things.

SOLDIER 2
But your toilet is a bucket.

SOLDIER 1
Who gives a crap about toilets or buckets?

SOLDIER 3
I give many craps about my toilet.

SOLDIER 2
But it's a bucket.

SOLDIER 3
And it works.

SOLDIER 1
You're talking in circles.

SOLDIER 2
No, wait. We've reached the crux of the issue, and it stems directly from the original supposition that nothing works the way it's supposed to.

SOLDIER 1
...

SOLDIER 3
...

SOLDIER 2
Your bucket does not work as it is supposed to because it works...as a toilet.

SOLDIER 1
I hate you guys.

The End
