Carnac the Magnificent: "Game thread procedure."
Ed McMahon: Game thread procedure. Ah, very timely.
Carnac: Perhaps. Perhaps not.
Ed: Your wisdom is uncanny, and beyond the ken of mortals. I stand corrected. Or, not. Still, the games are almost upon us. So, too, will be the game threads.
Carnac: So, too, will be the Padres 10-game losing streak.
Ed: To begin the season? I need to go visit my favorite bookie.
Carnac: Do not misuse the gift of mystic knowledge.
Ed: I won't misuse it. I'll just make some money.
Carnac: Just ask American Family Publishers for another advance.
Ed: My sponsor thanks you for the plug.
Carnac: We're getting off the subject here. Wouldn't you like me to open the envelope, which until now has been hermetically sealed in a mayonnaise jar?
Ed: If you would be so kind. Please reveal the question which "Game thread procedure" answers.
Carnac: (opens envelope) "What does your surgeon recommend when you rupture your game thread?"
