Teen: I’m gonna run for stur­geon gen­er­al one day.
Fa­ther: A stur­geon is a fish. It’s Sur­geon Gen­er­al, and you can’t run for it, the pres­i­dent ap­points you.
Teen: Then I’ll make him ap­point me.
Fa­ther: You al­so have to be a doc­tor, and in the mil­i­tary… And we know you’re not smart enough to be a doc­tor.
Teen: [Puz­zled, offended.]Father: You could run for Sec­re­tary of De­fense, though, and you don’t re­al­ly have to be that smart to do that.
Teen, ex­cit­ed­ly: Cool, I like guns!
