Is it?
Just how much should I believe that?
And what else is going on?
But why?
Can I?
Do I?

Is it? Do repeat your question please.
Just how much should I believe that? Be really sure before you believe me.
And what else is going on? abc... xyz
But why? Balin, you ask very interesting questions!
Can I? I love answering these.
Do I? Yes, maybe if you tried harder...

What is the answer?
What are the answers?
If a man has a fox, a duck, and some corn, and has to get across a river in a boat, how does he do it?
This?
That?
The other?

What is the answer? A floating-point real number.
What are the answers? <b>abc... xyz.
If a man has a fox, a duck, and some corn, and has to get across a river in a boat, how does he do it? He jumps across the river with them all
This? Stop this random questioning.
That? I thought I told you once.
The other? That is bad grammar.

But why?
But what?
But when?
But who?
But where?
But how?
Butterscotch?
Can you believe it's not butter?

But why? Aha! You got it.
But what? Mind your repetitiveness.
But when? Colorless yellow thoughts sleep furiously.
But who? Do you know?
But where? New York, where else?
But how? By jumping across the river, as I said
Butterscotch? Just butter and jam is better
Can you believe it's not butter?Absolutely, Balin!

Is that so? I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you.
Is that so? Be careful: are you asking to be killed?
Will that be so? Good question.
Was that so? Bad question.
Was it so? Don't forget your towel.

So it is? Don't be so sure about that.
It is? The Royal Society will confirm that.
But why? Aha! You got it.

Is butterscotch tasty?
Or is it stinky?
Did you realize it's the 66th anniversary of D-Day?
Isn't that funky?

I got it!

Convert the first letters of the first and second words of the question into numbers. Add them together. If the result is over 26, subtract 26- this is like making starting over from the beggining of the alphabet. If the question has only one word, just use its first letter and don't bother adding anything. Convert your number into a letter and use it as the start of the second word in your answer.

Did I just make it more complicated than neccesary?

Wow, great puzzle!

And Fermat, don't forget to use the big S-word. ($poyler, that is.)
