A friend and I were once playing Battleship. I called out "B-5." He replied, "Close, but no cigar." I told him that I wasn't looking for a cigar, I was looking for his submarine, and that if he tried to smoke that little piece of plastic I would expect that he would be sorely disappointed. He looked at me oddly, and then walked away, right in the middle of our game. Some people can be such poor-losers.
