a hat is a cushion is a task

a hat is a hat is a hat, said breadroll.
you have a point, said sponge, but a pillow is a pillow is a pillow.
did we not need a cushion, said breadroll.
let’s not rush things, said sponge and smiled. he had worked for a while on this punchline and was glad having managed to stage it so flawlessly.

drop this hat

would you lose it, said breadroll to a motionless block of wood. of course not, he thinks it is a pillow. or a cushion.
at least the headline sort of matches the content, said sponge, that is important and not something to be taken for granted.
he doesn’t drop the hat after all, said breadroll.
