Anger Concentrate

“It’s not just that the fresh squeezed juice is better, it’s that’s it completely different than juice from concentrate. If you had a watermelon-flavored Jolly Rancher next to a watermelon, sure, one may have slightly similar tastes to the other…

“But you certainly wouldn’t confuse them with each other.”

“Exactly.”

“It’s still weird.”

“You mean, for a normal person. For me it’s not that surprising.”

“No, even for you, it’s weird. I know you’re an angry guy, but, seriously, drinking fresh squeezed juice and being like ‘oh, this juice is so good… now I’m angry at all the other juice I’ve been drinking that’s from concetrate and sucks!’ is crazy even for you.”

“Yeah, when you put it that way, it does sound kind of funny.”

“I mean, you’re angry at juice! You’re getting worked up over juice. Juice you ALREADY DRANK YEARS AGO.”

[We then continued laughing.]
