___ like a rabbit

I was talking with a friend the other day when he produced the following nugget of wisdom. Keep in mind that this a conversation he held entirely with himself. I was just a bystander:

“I wish I could poop like a rabbit.”

(Long Pause)

“Actually, I wish I could not just poop like a rabbit, I wish I could eat my poop like a rabbit. It seems like a great step up in efficiency.”

(Long Pause)

“No. Never mind. It’s just a compensation for an inefficiency. Scratch the idea.”

(Long Pause)

“I’d still like to poop like a rabbit.”

  1. That is hysterical.
    I once walked in on a rather strange college roommate, in conversation with my other roommate’s dog, when he thought he was alone in the house.

    “Give me five. Go on, give me five. You can’t can you? You know why. Cause you’re a DOG.”

    Pause, confused tail wagging.

    “Do you know what 2 + 2 is? Do you? You don’t, do you? You know why? Cause you’re a DOG.”

    I think the point of the weird exchange was to make himself feel better too.
