What about funny do you not understand?

You’re a pistol, you’re really funny. You’re really funny.
What do you mean I’m funny?
It’s funny, you know. It’s a good story, it’s funny, you’re a funny guy.
What do you mean, you mean the way I talk? What?
It’s just, you know. You’re just funny, it’s… funny, you know the way you tell the story and everything.

Funny how? What’s funny about it?
Tommy no, you got it all wrong.
Oh, oh, Anthony. He’s a big boy, he knows what he said. What did ya say? Funny how?
Jus…
What?
Just… ya know… you’re funny.

You mean, let me understand this cause, ya know maybe it’s me, I’m a little screwed up maybe, but I’m funny how, I mean funny like I’m a clown, I amuse you? I make you laugh, I’m only here to amuse you?

What do you mean funny, funny how? How am I funny?
Just… you know, how you tell the story, what?
No, no, I don’t know, you said it. How do I know? You said I’m funny. How the heck am I funny, what the heck is so funny about me? Tell me, tell me what’s funny!

“Help me out. Which part don’t I understand? Is it the part where you cut $243 Billion from federal health care assistance? Am I not understanding the part where States would be allowed to let insurance companies price you out of coverage for having pre-existing conditions? Maybe I don’t understand the part of your bill where federal funding disappears completely after 2026? Or maybe it was the part where plans are no longer required to pay for essential benefits like maternity care or pediatric visits? Or the part where the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Hospital Association, the American Cancer Society, the Americans with Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association, Lung Association, Arthritis Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis, ALS, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and the March of Dimes among many others all vehemently oppose your bill.”

“Which part of that am I not understanding?”

Never pick a flame war with someone who buys their ephemeral photons by the medium sized star.
