The One About the Ectoplasm and the OsteoblastAaron Belz
Some ectoplasm sits next to an osteoblast at a bar. The ectoplasm asks the osteoblast, "Why do you form bones?" And the osteoblast responds, "Why are you the outer relatively rigid granule-free layer of the cytoplasm usually held to be a gel reversibly convertible to a sol?" And the ectoplasm is like, "Wow, that is such an awkward question." And so the osteoblast goes, "Seriously, why are you? I form bones for the same reason." The bartender, an osteoclast, asks them what they want to drink. The ectoplasm asks him what he recommends that's on draft, and he says the Dead Guy Ale, it's a fresh keg. They both break into fits of laughter. "Oh my gosh!" says the osteoblast, "Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock that's deep honey in color with a malty aroma, rich hearty flavor and a well balanced finish. Now does that sound like the kind of beer we drink?"
