They're human too, y'know!
In my profession I call folks in call centres every day. As these folks speak with ungrateful shopkeepers and tradesmen all day, I like to try and liven their lives up a bit. Just yesterday I had to call some folks to place a very large order. The ordering took ages as the poor guy was obviously new, so I decided to spice things up a little.

Halfway through the call I asked:

Me: "Who would win the following battle: A shark on wheels or a polar bear with a lightsabre?"
Him: "Hmm. The polar bear, I think."

Ordering plumbing supplies resumed until ten minutes later:

Me: "What about this one? HMS Ark Royal or Katie Price's vag?"
Him: "Katie Price's vag. Definitely. It's unstoppable."

Class act, that man.

It's nice
that you gave him obvious questions to ease him into it. If you'd brought up a conflagration between a ninja grizzly and machine-gun carrying panther, it's likely you'd still be on the phone.

I concur...
I also had a similar conversation along the lines of who'd win in a fight between an orange and a banana.

The guy on the phone was convinced that the banana would win because the orange would slip on the bananas skin.

He almost had me until I said:
"Yeah, but oranges don't have feet.."

and I got the reply:
"sir, you've just made my day.."

I never did switch my phone to 02.

I think the panther would clinch the win. just.

HMS Ark Royal would probably fit in Katie Price's vag.
