Do Not Assume That I Automatically Forgive Instances of Boorish Behavior

When I say something that is obvious windbaggery, like "I know an anusless man who can store a trout in his nostril," or "On the way to work I saw a naked man vomit on a stone cheetah," I expect people to nod and ask further questions. Active listening and all that. I do not expect them to walk away with a false limp or strike me with their rolled-up newspaper. Maybe my expectations are out of line, but I doubt it.
