(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*
