CHILD: Yes you may.
Conversation Two: Son of Ranter
CHILD: What is going on with Mommy?
FATHER: Mommy is upset.
CHILD: But Daddy, why is Mommy upset?
MOTHER: Oh, don't worry. I'm not mad at Daddy. I'm just upset because I'm tired of being Oppressed by The Man. Can you say Oppressed by The Man?
CHILD: Oppressed by The Man,
MOTHER: Good job.
CHILD: Can't you just stop being so oppressed all the time?
