“Life… life is like a grapefruit.”
“How so?”
“Well, it’s sort of orangy-yellow and dimpled on the outside, wet and squidgy on the middle. It’s got pips inside, too. Oh, and some people eat half a one for breakfast.”


Edit: People usually eat rather than ate, and they don’t usually hate half a grapefruit—it’s more the fruit in general.

"The ruler of the Universe dozed lightly in his chair. After a while he played with the pencil and the paper again and was delighted when he discovered how to make a mark with the one on the other. He then talked to his table for a week to see how it would react."
