And other ridiculous things people feel compelled to say.
Any time the word "curry" is mentioned:
You know, not all curries are hot.
Any time browning bananas are encountered:

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

"Well truthfully..." - so how about the previous stuff?
"It's a mute point..." - then how come I just heard you?
