I: Is Jack Black the Man?
Me: Definitely not?
I: Does he work for the man?
Me: Sometimes, yes.
I: Is David Cameron the Man?
Me: He wants to be the Man and sometimes he thinks he's the Man, but he's not. But he does work for the Man. He is a slave to the Man. The thing is the Man doesn't really exist, but just thinking of him kind of makes him exist. Some people think they're the Man...
I: Like Simon Cowell.
Me: Exactly like Simon Cowell.
I: But he's not the Man, is he?
Me: Not even close..
I: He's not important enough to be the Man. Does Wayne Rooney work for the Man?
Me: Yes, but he doesn't know it.
I: How about you? Do you work for the Man?
Me: Depends on the job. When I'm teaching I kind of half work for the Man. All teachers have to work for the Man a bit, especially when filling in forms
I: How about when you're taking pictures? Do photographers work for the Man?
Me: Depends on how much money they make? The more money they make, the more they work for the Man. The less they make, the less they work for the Man - but the more they want to work for the Man. Most of the time anyway. On the sly.
I: So you don't work for the Man?
I: Good for you, dad. I'm not going to work for the Man when I grow up.
Me: No, no, no!
