“So there was this singing group,” said Greg. “One gal, named Dawn; and two guys, one was named Lando and the other Tony. They were big in their day.”

“Named Lando?” said Brigid. “Where was this, Bespin?”

“The thing of it was, the two guys had these really crazy schedules. Neither one knew if they’d be performing on any given night. At a concert, on tour, didn’t matter. They never performed together once in ten years of touring. After fighting with it for about a year, they finally came up with the perfect name for the band…”

Brigid facepalmed. “No. Please. Don’t tell me.”

“They went on to great success as ‘Tony or Lando, and Dawn.’”

Brigid sighed. “Yeah. You went there. Could you possibly have made that joke even nerdier?”

“Sure I could. Their big hit song was ‘Tie a Yellow Ribbon ‘Round the Old Orc Tree.’”

“Ask a stupid question,” said Brigid.
