A plant begins growing out of the floor of someone's house. He summons his neighbor. The neighbor arrives, and says, "Why not put it in the garden? I'm not trying to be sarcastic, but you really went overboard last time with that redwood that is now growing on my property, being 70 FEET WIDE!!"
Then, he adds, "This is not the first time this has happened. You remember the award-winning lettuce, the luxuriant but extremely tough grass in the yard, the houseplants that needed Ritalin..."
"Hey, I was just trying to genetically alter some vegetables in order to stop global warming."
"This is not good, my friend. You know nothing of ecosciences. Be like me and build a reverse air conditioner."
(The conversation was growing pretty heated at this point, as they had already had disagreements about things like building additions to their homes and other less important issues.)
The neighbor with the plants was about to tell the previous neighbor to go to the place in his religion of eternal fire, but ... his friend said, "You know how hot my place is! Get a life!"
So they became friends forever thereafter, finding common ground they could agree upon, based on disparate but somehow logical afflictions.
