At work,
My co-worker, "I wish I were a lichen."
I stop everything I'm doing, "O.K. Part algae and part fungus. I don't see the advantage."
"No," he said, "the other kind."
"Oh, you mean l-y-c-a-n."
"Well, you'd at least get every full moon off. Nobody would want you around even if it's a busy weekend."

both terms are wrong anyway
these days you have to call them "trans-lupine" and use "xe" as their personal pronoun, or else they get massively offended
