Marshmallow: “Hi, Marshmallow and Bizzy here today.”

Bizzy: “We’re just hanging out with the Isager Wool 1; trying to stay out of trouble.”

Marshmallow: “Yes, Dizzy and Fred found some inspiration for some new intrigue.”

Bizzy: “Yep, when those two get some idea in their heads, it’s best to keep a low profile.”

Marshmallow: “It’s kind of like working with Abbot and Costello.”

B: Marshamallow, you know Dizzy’s stocking three new exotic yarns.

M: Great, what are they?

B: Witch is the first, Watts is the second, Eyed Oat Own is the third.

M: Are you a knitter?

B: Yes.

M: You work here at Dizzy Central?

B: Yes.

M: And you don't know the new yarns?

B: Well I should.

M: Well then which is first?

B: Yes.

M: I mean the yarn’s name.

B: Witch.

M: The first new yarn.

B: Witch.

M: The first new yarn.

B: Witch.

M: I'm asking you which is the first yarn?

B: That's the first yarn.

M: Which is the first yarn?

B: Yes.

M: Well go ahead and tell me.

B: That's it.

M: That's which?

B: Yes. [PAUSE...]

M: All I'm trying to find out is what's the first new yarn.

B: No. Watts is the second yarn.

M: I'm not asking you which is the second yarn.

B: Witch is the first yarn.

M: One yarn at a time!

B: Take it easy, Marshmallow.

M: I'm only asking you, which is the first yarn?

B: That's right.

M: What's the first yarn?

B: No. Watts is the second yarn.

M: I'm not asking you which's the second yarn.

B: Witch is the first yarn.

M: I don't know.

B: That’s the third yarn, we're not talking about it.

M: Now how did I get to the third yarn?

B: Why you mentioned its name.

M: If I mentioned the third yarn's name, which did I say is the third yarn?

B: No. Witch is the first yarn.

M: I don't know.

B: That’s the third one, Eyed Oat Own.

M: So, which is the first new yarn? What is the second new yarn? And we don’t know the third yarn!

B: That’s right!

M: That’s right? I have no idea and I don't give a darn!

B: Oh, those our the new needles.

M: (screams)
