Frasor isn't tossed salads or scrambled eggs, he's pond scum.

Yeah maybe.

Wait, I thought Frasor WAS a pitcher. This is like your wife telling you "I want a husband."

Nope. A mere belly-itcher.

Reminds me of an exchange in the mostly regrettable Angels in the Outfield that I found hilarious when I was 12:

Pitcher: "But I thought the game didn't start until 1:00?"
Manager: "It DOES start at 1:00! And you're a jackass!"
Pitcher: "No, I'm a pitcher."
Hitter: "You can be a pitcher AND a jackass."
Token Hispanic Hitter: "Si. Is very common."
