While L was perusing Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off, the following:
L: "Was knitting invented before boats?"
me: "Pretty sure boats were invented first. (long pause) Why are you connecting those two things?'
L: "Because if knitting was invented first, we could have called it rowing."
L: "Because you knit in rows...you know, rowing."
The torch is passed, don't mess with it.
