Of course not. In fact, sneakiness is very important to Laziness. In fact you have to work very hard to be properly Lazy....

Hello, Yeti Pestering Services Unlimited. Yeti speaking. How may I help you?

.....

Ah, I'm everso sorry, but the contracts for pestering that gentleman have had to be rescinded as per clause 13(a) subsection (2iii)

.....

As a goodwill gesture, I will be refunding a portion of your fees however.

.....

Well, that's very kind of you to say so.

.....

Certainly.

....

I'll be more than happy to enter into any new contracts to pester Mr LazyScot about his saga,

.....

Ah, just to not Pester you not to Pester him?...

.....

You have a deal. I await the delivery.

Ta Ta!

*click*

Nope, Yeti only has 2 legs, not 4.

Let me check though.

*counts legs*

Yup. Just two.

Is llounge llama an honorific then?

Is Am a llounge llama?

Yeti confused!

Yeti thought you meant he was actually a Llama, like those quadrupeds that live in the andes...

If Am is a llounge llama, then yeti happy to be a llounge llama too... as long as I still a Yeti too!
