"Have you seen a riposte performed by our dear neighbor visited by Squidward Tentacles?" Asked innocently Barnacle Boy.
"Do you mean is he still fit enough to parry an opponent's lunge in fencing?" Answered askance Mermaid Man.
"Not exactly. Some time after Squidward took his new job as a driver in a liquid waste disposal company whilst still being a CEO somewhere else, our neighbor mended his fence on the border with our property. He intended to start retaliatory action because he knows the drill." Said Barnacle Boy.
"Oily Drill Cuttings - From Waste to Resource - ResearchGate." Was a swift sharp reply made by Mermaid Man.
