1 Townsman: {rushing with news} Governor Wenchgood! Captain Ponsonby has returned!
2 Governor: Has he got the pirates? The map they stole? My daughter??
3 Townsman: Would you say two out of three is good?
3 Governor: Hmmm... Depends on which two... let's see now...
4 Townsman: Oh, it doesn't apply here. I was just musing in general philosophical terms.

I'm most intrigued that the Japanese single cover for Meatloaf's 1977 hit Two Out of Three Ain't Bad appears to contain the song title translated as 66% Ain't Bad.

EDIT: A reader writes that the Japanese version apparently translates to "66% Temptation"... which makes even less sense...

2017-12-31 Rerun commentary: Wikipedia's image of the Japanese Two Out of Three Ain't Bad single cover has been deleted, so I've updated the link I originally provided by reproducing the cover here:

Interestingly, the B-side of this single is a catchy ditty titled You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouse. Lest you feel I've pulled a Photoshop swifty, confirms it.
