Z: so?
B: no
Z: its fish. People eat fish.
B: no
Z: why not?
B:  too small. And you'll still be hungry. And we don't eat our pets
Z: People eat some animals. And fish are animals.

Z: OH OH OH
B: OR YOU'LL SHRIVEL UP LIKE A RAISIN!

Z: Raisins are good
B: Here, have some.  I didn't know you liked mac and cheese this much.
Z: oh yeah.  In fact, I want to marry it, and live happily ever after,
B: finish up
Z: and have little macaroni and cheeses, and raise them as my own.
