Several days ago it was my turn to cook the weekly dinner while visiting my old junk mail friend, Bobby. During that process he gave me a couple of plain metal covers to use for keeping things hot in bowls. They were of slightly different sizes and fit the bowls within a hair.

Donnie: "Boy these are handy covers. Just the right size."

Bobby: "They have them at Walmart. They're called 'universal covers.'"

I looked at those covers for a good five seconds before I said, "You asshole." They were *obviously* pot covers, but he had me for about two seconds.

That two seconds was enough for him and he fell apart, laughing one of those "I'm so pleased with myself" laughs.
