    I'd called my nephew about my brother. He didn't answer and got the answering machine and I left a message. I hadn't heard back so I called and got the answering machine again so I left another message. I got this back.

    I don't think this qualifies as a quip but more of a quandary. It's more something I've been wondering about...How do you make a living as a professional Bigfoot hunter? I mean...who signs your paychecks?Actually, there are a whole host of questions. Does it pay well? What qualifications do you need? Is that a very in demand profession? Do you need references? Where do you apply for that job? Is it a very competitive market? Do you need a degree? If so what in? Is it a very fulfilling career? Also when do you realize that that's what you want to do with your life? Are you born knowing it or do you figure it out from other job experiences?

    These are things that make you go, "hmmm???”
