What the hell? Clippy? Where did you come from? What is this, 1995?
Oh god dammit.
No, listen man: Ive got work to do here, Ive got a headache that would wound a god and youre breaking my flow. Can you just, I dont know, fuck off for a while?
Ahh, fine. Yes, I suppose I would.
Hey, man, Im sorry to hear
OK! Jesus. I get it. You can stay; just keep out of my way, alright?
You uppity little bastard. I swear to Christ if you dont knock it off Ill goddamn delete you.

Oh no, Clippy. Im not going to take you out. Youre totally right. I cant touch you. But whats this? What are these subroutines here? C:/Windows/Programs/MS_word/Clippy/Family?

I did it, Clippy. I retarded your kids. Are you strong enough for that, Clippy? Are you strong enough to raise two motherless special needs children? Are you strong enough to take care of them, every moment of every day for the rest of their lives? Are you strong enough to do it alone? Are you strong enough to look into their faces and not see the love you lost?
Ouch. Rookie move, Clippy. Everybody knows youre supposed to go through the mouth for a sure kill. Do I have to finish this for you?
Right. So. Where was I again?The Mohawks were among Native Americas fiercest tribes, and the primal spike of the Mohawk Cut echoes that warrior legacy to this day.
