Glimpse into Tomorrow
HH: Aah, well, yes. Hello, Mr. Garrison. A pleasure to be here.
GK: So, Professor, I understand you have devise a new source of energy.
HH: Yes. After many long hard years of research and experimentation and trial and error, I have developed a new kind of combustion engine, one that does not use petroleum products for fuel.
GK: This is amazing. So you have a motor which can power automobiles without gasoline or diesel?
HH: Correct. I've developed an engine that uses an organic, renewable source of energy.
GK: The implications of this are astounding. Something like this could remove our dependence on foreign oil and preserve our natural resources.
HH: Correct again. It's a product grown right here in America.
GK: Truly amazing. And with gasoline prices soaring to new heights, this could be a minor miracle for the economy.
GK: What is the new fuel, professor?
GK: I'm sorry...
HH: Milk. I can get 35 miles per gallon with regular, 25 miles with skim.
GK: You have a car that runs on milk?
HH: And certain soft cheeses.
GK: Have you been in the supermarket lately?
HH: I've been locked away in my laboratory for years working on this thing. Why?
GK: Right now milk is much more expensive than gasoline.
HH: Really? That's nuts!
GK: Nonetheless. We appreciate your attempts, but it seems a bit of a lateral move.
HH: Oh, dear. I was so close. I gave up work on my nuclear powered barbecue grill to work on this full time.
GK: That's a shame, professor, when current events overtake you like that.
HH: Well, it's just one more failure on my way to success. Now I can begin work on my solar-powered flash light.
GK: Good luck on that, professor. And perhaps we can have you back for another....Glimpse into Tomorrow.
