Have you thought of how hard it is to save up an entire ocean one cupful at a time?


One cupful, one barrelful, one supertankerful at a time, what's the difference?

The problem isn't how much of it you scoop up at once, but where you keep the stuff after you've scooped it.

I am a philosipher. The world's very first one. It just took you this long to recognize it.

Well, how would I know. I don't know what your career is or very much about you.

Wow, a philosipher?

Is that like an elite type of philosopher? Impressive. ^^

I think philosophy is really cool. I mean, it's something that helps expand your mind and think more about life. :)

It's very elite. There have been many philosophers, but I am the first philosipher.

Tony had a problem with Ronald Colman. Jealousy, I suspect.

Even more importantly, how you transport it from the scooping place to the storing place. That's where Mike comes in.

"Mike Cash's Ocean Water Transport, Inc."

Paint that on your truck and see if anyone gets angry.

It's a step up from my normal role of Philistine
