High girl #1: Why do people say “talking out of your ass?” You can't actually talk out of your ass. Like, physically.
High girl #2: Well, it's an expression. Like “talking shit.”
High girl #1: But you can't actually physically make words come out of your ass (turns to random boy). You! Can you talk out of your ass? Like make words come out of it.
Random boy, amused: No,I can't say I have.
High girl #2: But where does the expression “talking shit” come from?
Random boy: I don't know. It's like what you're saying is shit, so your talking is… poop.
High girl #2: Poop!
High girl #1: People order our patties!
High girl #2: From Stop & Shop!
