Honey: "The author of this term paper would like to thank the following: Mom, Mao, and my loyal typist, Mrs. Shapiro... and to all the guys down at Pepe's Pizzeria." J.J: Hey roomie! Whatcha working on? Honey: Hi, J.J! I'm just finishing up my term paper on Professor Kissinger's new book. J.J: Oh? What's your thesis? Honey: Well, the book poses some interesting questions. Listen to this. "Should the career of a statesman be properly viewed as a balance sheet, as a series of pluses and minuses? Can that concept be applied in matters of conscience? For instance, can one 'offset' criminality in Cambodia with rapprochement in China? Can detente with Russia ever wash away the stain of Chile?" J.J: Jiminy! You put that in your paper? Honey: Of course not. It's from the study guide. J.J: Study guide? Honey: Here's another tough one. "Name three countries that the author saved from going Communist."
