I was attending a ceremony at a graphite convention, with multiple speakers. To my surprise, I was invited to give a speech of my own.

I took the microphone from one of the speakers. Oozing confidence, I shouted, “8B.”

The crowd erupted in applause. I handed the microphone back to the speaker and they told me,

“That was very bold of you to say.”

What would you call a Russian invasion of Alaska?
