FWP: Did you ever wish you hadn’t noticed something?
CSO: Like what?
FWP: Well, just yesterday I noticed that “O Holy Night” goes perfectly well to a martial beat.
CSO: Huh? You’re not serious, are you?
FWP: It does! Listen: (demonstrates, with conductor’s arm motions)
CSO: No! Stop! (claps hands over ears)
FWP: You think that’s bad? I can’t flush it out of my head. In fact, it’s started me wondering what Christmas carols could be sung to the tune from “Green Acres.” Or maybe “Gilligan’s Island.”
CSO: You are living proof that there are things Man was not meant to know.
FWP: (sweetly) I thought you were Jewish?
CSO: Don’t make me hurt you, Fran.
