Two strangers sat together for a long flight, on vacation.
The first guy braced the second with demand for conversation.
The second closed his open book and, holding back a glower,
Asked "What topic pleases you?" The first: "Oh, how 'bout nuclear power?
I’ve heard that talk is just the thing to shorten hours weary."
The second man replied "If you insist—but first, a query;
Now horses, cows and deer eat grass, with comparable digestion,
Mastication, peristalsis—all the same, without a question.
But excreta shapes they each produce (thank God, we needn’t smell it)
From horse, cow, deer respectively are; 'apple' 'pie' and 'pellet.'
Why different shapes for stuff the same from Maine to Tanzania?"
The first guy thought a bit, and said "I’ve really no idea."
The second asked "How qualified are you—yet there you sit,
To argue nuclear power when it’s plain you don’t know shit!"
