Boy: -keeps rocking out-
Girl: "WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO!!"
Boy: "Oh, hey... I'm spinning some Linkin Park at this moment. I've got thier "Hybrid Theory" and "Meteora" albums on shuffle! It's pretty kick-butt, if I do say so myself."
Girl: "Oh, what genre are they?"

With time, they will grow closer and fall in love and eventually, after the legal marriage ceremony, they will one day give birth to a child, and that child's name will be Hybrid Rock!"
Girl: "Sounds like an oxymoron."
Boy: "Nah. It's a paradox."
