David: Oh, He's Our Shortstop

“I enjoy a good marathon.”

“Marathon? You mean that stuff they spray to kill fruit flies and gave all those Vietnam vets cancer?”

“No, you’re thinking of malathion.”

“I thought malathion was that drug that if you take it when you’re pregnant you get flipper babies.”

“No, that’s thalidomide.”

“Thalidomide? Are you sure? I thought that was that town in ancient Greece where they had some big battle and then a guy ran 26 miles to tell the general his side won and then he dropped dead.”

“No, that’s a marathon.”

“You like running 26 miles and dropping dead? Why?”
