Funny Comment at Unfogged

"TMK, I don't know what you're talking about. When I hear someone say "and", the first thing I do is somehow shut them up until I can evaluate the truth of their first conjunct. If it's false, I simply don't let them proceed.

Similarly, if someone makes a true statement and then says "or", and the first statement was true, I just leave before I can hear what the second disjunct would have been. Why should I waste my time?"
