No, but reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the series by the late great Neil Gaiman, will.

You just may not notice that until it's too late.

Those two sieves are hilarious. It took me some time to realize that people were not weirdly wrong about it. (Not that the rest of the sieves aren't hilarious, they are awesome too, but those two got me.)

I'm not sure DEATH of rats would appreciate being called a mouse. I imagine it might have similar effects to calling a librarian a monkey.

We imagine it would be quite different. The Librarian makes you wish you were dead. Azrael of rats would kill you outright.

Recommends a Discworld character, such as Rincewind. Could revive old Madness avatars. Remembers Sheldon (possibly the one below, specifically), bananas, and ball gags. Combine as desired.

Well, that's what you get for dividing by Cucumber. You can divide by Bananas, but only if they're pink. This does though result in an irrational vegetable, and those are only useful in mathematical proofs of theoretical soy-meat salads.

Apples and Oranges are only useful in non-boolean illogical evaluations. Do not attempt arithmetical equations with them, all you get is Fruitcake, and you can never completely cancel out Fruitcake as it performs multiplication by itself when you're not looking.
We're in the traffic-chopper over the XKCD boards where there's been a thread-derailment. A Liquified Godwin spill has evacuated threads in a fourty-post radius of the accident, Lolcats and TVTropes have broken free of their containers. It is believed that the Point has perished.

That may be true of oranges, but some Apples come with anti-fruitcake devices.

There’s no point in acting surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for 50 of your Earth years, so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it’s far too late to start making a fuss about it now. … What do you mean you’ve never been to Alpha Centauri? Oh, for heaven’s sake, mankind, it’s only four light years away, you know. I’m sorry, but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in local affairs, that’s your own lookout. Energize the demolition beams.

Clearly not important enough to read....

No, the theme is Pratchett. That includes the Bromeliad series, Johnny and co, Strata, the Dark side of the Sun, the CArpet people, etc.
