Married Life With the 5000s


Mrs.5000 is reading a book about polar exploration. She remarks about how much cooperation and teamwork is required for humans to survive in that extreme environment.


michael5000: You could almost say "There is no 'I' in 'Arctic'."

Mrs.5000: rolls eyes

michael5000: Except there is, of course.

Mrs.5000: Yeah.

michael5000: thinks a bit....

You know, there's no "I" in "Belgium"...

Mrs.5000: Yes there is!

michael5000: Oh, damn, you're right!

...thinks some more...

You know, there's no "I" in "Mexico"...

Mrs.5000 (incredulous): Yes there is!

michael5000: Oh my god, you're right! There is! What's wrong with me?!

...thinks some more...

You know, there's no "I" in "Canada"...

Mrs.5000: speechless

Gurgle snort - yup, you're like some kind of Garisson Keillor for the Northwest.

Of course, there are multiple "I's" and a "me" in the United States of America. Kind of puts thing in perspective, eh?
