Bimbette: So, I’m thinking of breaking up with my boyfriend.
Friend: Why?
Bimbette: Because he cut his hair.
Friend: That’s just stupid.
Bimbette: No, you don’t understand how upset I was — he looked like he was in the Army.
Friend: So?
Bimbette: What if the terrorists think I’m with him? They’d bomb us both, and that’s just not happening.
