CLXXXIV: Crackpot

Trypto: you're supposed to put the hedges on the other side of the fence...
Lani Kai: I fail to see why there can't be hedges there
Trypto: because you use fences to keep people out of the shrubbery, not the other way around
Trypto: they aren't even pretty
Trypto: maybe if they were shaped into rows of little Darth Vader heads or something
Lani Kai: that would incur high maintenance costs
Lani Kai: and since when is Darth Vader "pretty"?
Trypto: Hayden Christensen is teh hotz0rs

Lani Kai: is that a missile launch base in the Amazon jungle?
Trypto: actually, I think it's an alien observatory on the dark side of the Moon, which everyone knows is lush and verdant
Trypto: ...or maybe it's part of a plastic trashcan that someone left on the lawn?
Lani Kai: nah, it couldn't be that

Trypto: eek, I'm falling
Trypto: where is that?
Lani Kai: the wall you see here
Lani Kai: the security people stopped me to make sure I wasn't taking pictures of the dumpster
Trypto: dumpsters need their privacy too, you know
Lani Kai: and people playing tennis pong, cows, and bushes don't?
Trypto: it's different

Trypto: that's just silly
Lani Kai: you're just silly
Trypto: your MOM is silly
