Vivian:  Wait!  Don’t use that toaster.

Eric:  Why?  I want some toast for breakfast.

Vivian:  It isn’t safe.  I’ve just read about a research study that found people who use toasters have higher incidences of tumors.

Eric:  That’s ridiculous.  I’m having some toast with my coffee.

Vivian:  You can’t use the coffee maker, either.  The use of coffee makers is linked to heart disease.

Eric:  Are you putting me on?  Where are you getting this junk science?

Vivian:  From very reputable sources.

Eric:  I bet these so-called researchers are making sweeping conclusions and fraudulent claims based on limited or nonexistent data.

Vivian:  Stop!

Eric:  What now?  I’m opening the refrigerator to get some milk.

Vivian:  Refrigerators emit harmful rays that can be bad for your vision.

Eric:  Wait a second.  Are you having trouble sleeping again?

Vivian:  As a matter of fact, I am.  I haven’t slept in three days.

Eric:  I don’t need any research study to tell me that people who don’t sleep think kooky thoughts!
