Man 1: Hey kid listen to this. *Extends earphones playing blissful utterances of Angels (AKA Post Rock)
Boy 2: Okay bro *Places blissful musical blissfulness into his virgin ears*
*Boy magically transforms into Man and learns answers to life's age old question's: The egg came before the chicken because it takes a rooster to make the egg an embryo. The price off eggs in China is $0.00- You get eggs given to you by the Honorable Chairman, not bought you ignorant capitalists. Solo did shoot first.*
The two men then look into each others eyes. Nod agreeably then part ways. Brothers in Rock. Enlightened and bonded forever.
