->We can't bust heads like we used to, [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment but we have our ways.]] One trick is to tell them stories that don't go anywhere. Like the time I took the ferry to Shelbyville. I needed a new heel for my shoe so I decided to go to Morganville, which is what they called Shelbyville in those days. So I tied an onion to my belt, which was the style at the time. Now to take the ferry cost a nickel, and in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on them. Give me five bees for a quarter you'd say. Now where were we, oh yeah. The important thing was that I had an onion on my belt, [[SoGoodWeMentionedItTwice which was the style at the time]]. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
