The DLF is an adorable teddy bear compared to his relatives. Just saying. But I feel comfortable here, because I never stay anywhere longer than 48 hours.

In that case, "I feel very comfortable here," doesn't really mean anything. What is "here" when as soon as you have explained, you're already packing up and going "there"?

Stop trying to induce an existential crisis. It won't work. You can't beat this:

I just like precision in language is all.

And I thought you didn't know any French. Hmpf. Be more specific next time, e.g. "I don't know any French apart from ceci n'est pas une pipe, baguette, o là là, etiquette, decolleté, c'est la vie, bonne chance, l'etat c'est moi, creme brulée, vis-à-vis, à l'attaque, allez les bleus, fromage, and bonjour cherie."

I actually used that picture when I was student teaching, but I think I might have been unfair to the artist. Because, technically, a picture of a pipe isn't a pipe...no internal contradiction necessary....

Oh dear. This conjures up terrible memories of lessons on language skepticism. We had to read this weird dude's account of how he wanted to write the ultimate encyclopaedia but then saw a watering can in the garden and realized that words were insufficent to describe its sublimity, so in the end he was wholly unable to speak or think coherently.

You'd probably enjoy it, Glen.

That sounds like something from Dufferland, except that guy was probably serious. We, on the other hand, like Sirius, which is very different. Sirius is much shinier than a watering can.

But the Trash Can is much shinier than Sirius!

But the Duffer Sun is shinier than the Trash Can because Sirius shines down upon it.
