    (I work at an aquarium. I am petting one of the starfishes in the touch tank when a middle-aged man comes up to the tank. A coworker working the tank is telling us facts about starfishes).

    Coworker: “A really interesting aspect about these guys is that if one of their arms was severed, they could grow another one.”

    Middle-aged Man: “So, you mean that if I cut off one of its arms it would grow right back?”

    Coworker: “Well yes, but—”

    Middle-aged Man: “What if I cut off TWO of its arms? Would they still grow back?”

    Coworker: “Well, I’m—”

    Middle-aged Man: “I know! I will cut off ALL of its arms! Let’s see if it can rebound from that!”

    Coworker: *freaked out* “Thank you for all the interest everyone, but the touch tank is now closed for the day!” *moves all the starfish back towards him and closes the tank*
