Ben: Just who is this Richard Thompson feller, that he should have his own almanac?
Bird: Gee, Ben, he's one of the great satirical caricaturists of our time, social and political!
Ben: I've heard the same said about me.
Bird: This person is a true artist, Ben. His perceptiveness and his wry wit blend beautifully  with his ability to draw. Think of Michelangelo with a sense of humor.
Ben: Ah, does ceilings, does he?
Bird: Seriously, I can't say enough in his favor. Such is my admiration for the man and his work!
Ben: I think he should go fly a kite.
Bird: Come, now - talents like his don't come along every day. They orta give him the noble prize, or something!
Ben: That's dynamite (to coin a phrase) - but how can one like someone this nobel?
Bird: Hey, don't get me wrong - he's also a great human bean!
Ben: I'll be the judge of that. Where can I see his work?
Bird: Just turn this here page.
