Trevor: "Did you see that Televangelist on channel 89 last night? He was explaining all the signs that prove that the world is about to end. I ordered the DVD and book set that details all I need to do to be prepared for the end."

Mark: "How much did that cost?"

Trevor: "$149.00. Why? What does it matter with eternity at stake?"

Mark: "Think about it, Trevor. If that hellevangelist really believes that the end is near, why does HE need all that money?"
