Cut to the chase, pal, it's almost lunchtime.
Okay, I've written a book called Animal Farm. It's a--
I don't do children's books. Wait, is it a pop-up book? If it's a pop-up book I wouldn't mind taking a look. Those are way cool. You can't beat a good pop-up book. I love 'em. Most people think they're for kids, but what kid has the sophistication to appreciate a well-done pop-up book? What I hate is those books where you have to stare at each page for a minute with your eyes unfocused and then suddenly you see some lame 3-D picture of a pig that looks like a sheep or something. It's not one of those, is it? Those were hot for about five minutes. The payoff was never worth the effort. Although I wouldn't mind knowing how they make those. Come to think of it, I have no idea how they make pop-up books, either. If they could make a pop-up book that's not so fragile, they'd have something. Too often they don't pop up cleanly and get stuck. They're too easy to ruin. That's why they shouldn't be for kids. You don't give a child a Van Gogh. You don't hire a child to cut a diamond. Yet parents give their children pop-up books. It makes no sense. Anyway, sorry about taking up all your time. Is it a pop-up book?
Oh . . . Does it moo and oink?
I see . . . Got anything else?
I have a book called 1984.
Ooooo! Is it one of those books that's shaped like the title?
