That's Entertainment. That's Entertainment. Ah-huh.

So when you are trying to talk to Someone about "relationship issues" and Someone interrupts you by causing the computer (which is, as usual, in bed along with the cell fone, the TV remote, two or three books and some laundry) to launch a loud .wav of "Matzoh #5", that Jewish parody of "Mambo #5 (A Little Bit Of...)," that's a pretty good nonverbal indication that Someone doesn't feel like discussing whatever It is.

And then when the computer, by happenstance, segues into an .mp3 of "Turning Japanese" at the same moment the WWII coverage playing closed-captioned on the TV shifts from the sinking of the Bismarck to near-naked sailors scampering around in the Pacific, followed by explosions at Pearl Harbor and dead pilots floating in the drink, one tends to get really distracted laughing and decide that whatever It is probably didn't need to be discussed again anyway.
