You bet your asterisk!

Gentlemen, what we are about to witness may change the history of the entire world!

…excuse me, but isn’t that a bit grandiose? The history of the entire world?

Who the heck are you?

Me? Oh, nobody, just someone who’s extremely allergic to cliches.

Why you little… What gives you the¬†temerity?

Temerity? Wow, that there’s a big word. Yessir. Why, I bet ole’ Blainard never even heard that word, before he was so tragically demised due to the fact that he was talkin’ on the phone and never saw that truck barreling down on his self.

What? Who? Who the heck is Blainard?

Blainard? Helluva man, far better a man than you or I certainly. But, damn, he loved that phone, always talking on that phone. Who was he even talkin’ to? Honestly, I don’t know if he even knew who he was talkin’ to when he was talkin’ on the phone.

Security! Security! Get this lunatic out of here!

You can remove me from the premises, but you will never remove the memory of that man. The tragedy of his loss. The tragic inattention, too absorbed with his conversation. Blainard talkin’ on the phone.

Well, after that, ahem, unusual interruption, we can recommence…

Gentlemen, what we are about to witness may change the history of the entire world!

Gentlemen? Gentlemen? Hey! Where the heck did everybody go?

Hmmn.

This certainly didn’t go as well as I hoped. Not at all.
