  It is rather an example of your limited grasp of the world around you.

  For instance, I expect people to think.  Bringing up animals in order to
  explain how to deal with you is an interesting approach to let me know
  that I should not expect you to think.

| shocking, and above I have provided the evidence to why.

  Yes, my tactic does not work on animals.  What I did not know was that
  you were an animal.  Therefore, I must apologize and instead give you
  resounding applause for the amazing feats that animals can do these days.
  Please bring my best compliments to your trainers.  I did not realize they
  could teach animals Java, yet, but I am always open to surprises.  What
  kind of animal are you?  I would hazard a guess on a chimpanzee, as other
  chimpanzees have managed to learn symbolic language.

  The first clue that you were probably an animal should have been your
  lack of a last name.  I have never heard of any lab rats or chimpanzees
  with last names.

| The more you continue to argue that this *corporal punishment* style is
| correct, the more you display your old-fashioned, cruel behaviour.

  Again, I apologize.  Had I known you were a chimpanzee or some other
  trainable animal, I would certainly not have treated you as a human being.
