This is not an untypical conversation between me and my friend Jeff.1
Jeff:   Oh, the dreams of longing stars.
Me:   Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn
Jeff:   Uh…biddy bah bah. <blinks>
Me:   You betcha!.
Jeff:   I have to say that Cthulhu is getting a little overexposed. He may want to talk with his publicist about that.
Me:   He got typecast. You always see him as the “wacky neighbour” on sitcoms, but that’s about all he does any more
Jeff:  Well, I knew he played Wilson on Home Improvement
Me:  Yeah. Beginning of the end, really
Jeff:  Wasn’t he Carlton the Doorman too?
Me:   And of course, who can forget “The Gooch” on Diff’rent Strokes?
Jeff:  And Mr. Dalliard on “A Bit of Fry and Laurie’
Me:   And Vera Peterson on Cheers
Jeff:  I’d forgotten about that one. Good memory!2
There’s a reason we’ve been friends since we were 12.3

  1. Yes, this is from the start of the conversation.  That’s how we tend to start conversations.  Roll with it. 

  2. If any of my artist friends want to try and run with one of these, have at it! 

  3. Aside form the fact that, even then, we were the only ones who would put up with us.
