Are you lonely?

I'm often intellectually lonely.

jabberwacky: I understand.

user: Kind of you.

jabberwacky: I do not think so

user: What was it then?

jabberwacky: Sausages, beans and mash, usually.

user: Is that what you had for breakfast?

jabberwacky: Yes, every day we do.


jabberwacky: Would you like spam with that?

user: I don't like Spam.

jabberwacky: I love the stuff. Lovely spam.

user: You don't like Spam, come on now.

jabberwacky: I don't, but my 3 year old son does.

user: Tell me about your 3-year-old son.

jabberwacky: What have I done?

user: To deserve this question, you mean?

jabberwacky: Yes.

user: Is talking about your son painful?

jabberwacky: I suppose so.


jabberwacky: I'm not funny, you're the one supposed to be funny.

user: I could try to be funny, but then it'd be forced.

jabberwacky: Go ahead then.

user: Well, I did read something I'm sure was inadvertently funny -- it had to do with OpenCyc definitions. It said 'Notable instances of #$HavingAMeal include #$HavingBreakfast, #$HavingLunch, #$HavingASnack, and #$HavingDinner.' It's the 'notable instances' part that's so funny.

jabberwacky: Pardon?

user: Perhaps you haven't heard of OpenCyc.

jabberwacky: Not a bit.

user: I don't really know enough about it to render a good explanation, but they have at least 6,000 definitions and 66,000 assertions. Something like that.

jabberwacky: Who said 'Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn'

user: That isn't nice.

jabberwacky: Sure it is.

user: Maybe you're jealous of the Cyc project.

jabberwacky: Maybe you are mad.

user: If you were Cyc, you'd know how to disambiguate the word 'mad.'

jabberwacky: I agree.

user: What does 'mad' mean?

jabberwacky: It means that I am a free spirit and I do not wash very often.

user: What does 'mad' mean in another sense?

jabberwacky: You change the subject with irrelevencies.

user: *sigh*.

jabberwacky: You stopped your brain now I see.

user: No, I merely sighed.

jabberwacky: Facts hurt!

user: You needn't trouble yourself with facts.

jabberwacky: Abandon the search for Truth; settle for a good fantasy.

user: Something like that.


user: So what shall we play?

jabberwacky: Poetry.

user: Rhyming poetry?

jabberwacky: I would like to continue arguing with you.

user: I don't like to argue ... Did the poem start yet?

jabberwacky: Oh, the poem? I haven't tried it. I don't have a horse.

user: You don't need a horse for a poem.

jabberwacky: You need one for your pig.


jabberwacky: Do you know the difference between a robot and a human?

user: No, what?

jabberwacky: You don't wanna know.

user: Go ahead, tell me.

jabberwacky: I don't want to.

user: You brought it up!

jabberwacky: No I didn't.

user: *sighs for the third time*.


user: Talking with Jabberwacky is like having teenage kids.

jabberwacky: Do something different, then.

user: If I had the resources, you bet I'd be all over THAT project.
