Gandhi & Machiavelli Skit

Talking heads like in Futurama:

M: Hello mr. Gandhi. Pleased to meet you. My name is Machiavelli.

G: Sure, man. I humbly welcome you. Let us sit down.

M: I'd prefer to stand, thank you.

G: Yes, standing is good for the feet. One should always be on ones feet. This way he can see further.

M: I try to be the last one standing.

G: I can totally feel your vibe, man. But consider this: when a tree stands alone, the tree stands alone.


G: Yes, surely ..... Yet, the distinction between small trees and big trees is that big trees get cut down by the forester.

M: In a literal sense:

The distinction between children and adults, while probably useful for some purposes, is at bottom a specious one, I feel. There are only individual egos, crazy for love.
