Myself: And what's the deal with the Count? You know, on Sesamee Street? What does a blood-sucking incarnation of evil have to do with counting numbers?
Joseph: He's not a blood-sucking vampire, he's a counting vampire.
Myself: What do you mean?
Joseph: Instead of sucking blood, he counts. Counting is like eating.
Myself: Uh huh. Where does the thunderclap come into this?
Joseph: Oh, you see, that seals the deal. Otherwise it doesn't take.
Myself: And if there's no thunder?
Joseph: He keeps on counting.
