Petrified is Edible

From a Google Talk chat this afternoon. Edited for clarity:

Timothy: meatloaf sure is salty!
and gravy

Rebecca: mmmmm! salt......!

Timothy: (is salty)

Rebecca: how true

Timothy: (gravy is salty, not meatloaf is gravy)

Rebecca: also true

Timothy: (meatloaf is not gravy)

Rebecca: you're just full of true statements today, aren't you?

Timothy: i guess you are too!
:P

Rebecca: :P
did you buy lunch today then?

Timothy: i did

Rebecca: maybe when we have lunch together, I should go over there and have meatloaf and gravy!
I've been craving salt all day

Timothy: wow. their rolls are actually not stale

Rebecca: is that the only thing that determines whether a roll is good or not? if it's stale?

Timothy: it is not

Rebecca: oh
how is it then? (besides not stale)

Timothy: it is tolerable

Rebecca: :P

Timothy: stale is not tolerable
tolerable is not stale
tolerable is other things too

Rebecca: like what?

Timothy: tolerable is edible
stale is not edible

Rebecca: stale is edible!

Timothy: no it is not

Rebecca: yes, it is
stale is not enjoyable

Timothy: edible is enjoyable

Rebecca: no, edible is able to be eaten
moldy is edible
petrified is not edible

Timothy: petrified is edible

Rebecca: is not!

Timothy: petrified is enjoyable

Rebecca: what?
you've got your booleans switched around, I think

Timothy: petrified is very tolerable

Rebecca: oh, no I don't think so!

Timothy: i think so

Rebecca: are we talking about the same petrified here?

Timothy: yes we are
there is only one definition of petrified

Rebecca: no, there are two definitions
1. to convert into stone or a stony substance.
2. to benumb or paralyze with astonishment, horror, or other strong emotion: I was petrified with fear.
3. to make rigid or inert; harden; deaden: The tragedy in his life petrified his emotions.
I meant number 1.

Timothy: i meant number 1

Rebecca: a petrified roll is one in which the organic material has been replaced with rock material
a petrified roll = roll made of rock
rock is not edible
petrified is not edible

Timothy: what is salt

Rebecca: !
lol

Timothy: if salt is not edible, why are you craving it

Rebecca: you got me

Timothy: HA!

Rebecca: you win

Timothy: (that was REALLY fun)
ahem
petrified is edible

Rebecca: good, I'm glad you liked it!

"What is salt?" Tim, that was probably the funniest thing I've ever heard!

Oh man, that provided some laugh-out-loud moments for me and my roommates and guests. "There are two definitions." Makes me think of...

"Our chief weapon is surprise... surprise and fear... fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise... and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency... and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four*... no... *Amongst* our weapons... Amongst our weaponry... are such elements as fear, surprise... I'll come in again.
