Ask Me No Questions

One to think about, or not.

La Belle Fille asked me this one. She uses it t see inside the minds of children, or something.

"If someone asks you if you have a pen they can use, and you say 'no' without looking, is it lying?"

Anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

Reminds me of the time a proctologist reached into his pocket for a pen, and pulled out a rectal thermometer. He grouched, "oh, great. Some asshole's got my pen!"

It's perfectly OK to dismiss the request it's accompanied by a quick mime of writing.
