Concession Stand

There's very little you can do to stay entertained when your own murder has yet to be solved.

So I went down to the concession stand.

"Okay, okay," said the man behind the counter, "you're better at pingpong than I am."

"I don't want to do this," I said, "but I promise that I'll use the proper Greek octopodes as the plural for octopus instead of the comfortable and intuitive but incorrect Latin back-formation octopi."

The man behind the counter nodded hesitantly and said, "Well, you can stay at this stand as long as you like, I guess."
