Oh my dear 'n' fluffy Lord, I can't believe I have to explain this.

Okay, you know what a stapler does, right? It staples things. You know the things on the end of your hands, those are called fingers, right? Well, you get ahold of a stapler, you staple stuff, so it follows that if a stapler staples, fingers... fing.

But has anybody here ever figured out how to fing?

And if the Master Confusionist hasn't dazzled you enough, here's another question to make your brain crawl around in your head:

How come the word doing -- As in, "What are you doing?" -- isn't pronounced the same as the word, "boing"?
