Entry for Dialogue 500 - Prompt: There were these two turkeys...
"There were these two turkeys..."

"Dude, why are you so excited about turkeys?"

"I'm not. I was going to tell a joke. See, there were these tw..."

"A joke about turkeys can't be good."

"How do you know? You've not heard it yet. There were thes..."

"What if I don't want to hear it?

"... that's just mean."

"No it's not, it's honest."

"You're just afraid it'll make you smile!"

"No I'm not.

"Yes, you are. You hesitated, which means you're afraid. What are you afraid of? It's just a turkey. Gobble, gobble."

"Now that's just cliche. They sound nothing like that!"

"Right, and a cow doesn't moo."

"Seriously, man, that's just mean."

"Is not."

"Is, too."

"Is not."

"Is, too."

"... quit that. Why won't you let me tell you the joke?"

"... my cousin is a turkey. It might offend her."

"A turkey? I thought she was blonde!"

"Well, she's that, too."

"So, I'm not allowed to tell turkey jokes or blonde jokes."

"Right. Or cow jokes."

"Is there some kind of joke I can tell? I mean, some sort of joke that... what kind of family do you have, anyway?"

"You don't have to get mad. I don't have a horse in my family. You can talk about a horse."

"Neigh... I don't want to tell a joke now. Go mooooove on with your holidays without turkeying any more of my time."

"I hate you."
