“It’s alive!” Dr. Frankenstein shouted when signs of life emerged from his creation. “I have dedicated my life to reanimating life. Do you realize what this means?”
“Not really,” said Igor.
“You idiot,” Dr. Frankenstein yelled. “This is a harbinger of a brave new world. The value of my achievement is beyond comprehension. It’s a scientific spring forward into an almost unimaginable future where death can be beaten.”
“Oh,” said Igor.
“Igor, the biggest inadequacy of humanity is that our lives are limited to decades,” Dr. Frankenstein said, “But my ability to reanimate life opens up a plethora of heretofore unimaginable opportunities for mankind. Can’t you see it?”
“Sure, boss,” Igor said. “If you say so.”
