The man behind the fruit stand said, "You are looking at that dog, too, yeah? He comes around here a lot."
"Yeah, it's pretty weird."
"I know!" said the man, "How does the dog manage to have such a healthy, shiny coat?"
"Uh, that's not it."
"Why does that dog have a gun?"
The fruit vendor made a broad gesture. "Because this neighborhood is so dangerous!"
Then I bought some apples.
