In this transcript from an Ohio Supreme Court Case, a Cuyahoga County office worker refuses to answer a simple question: "has the Recorder's office had photocopying machines?" The worker mainains (for ten pages!) that he doesn't know what a photocopying machine is, and can't say whether his office has one:
Marburger: How about this: Have you ever heard the term "photocopier" or "photocopy" used in the Recorder's office by anybody?
Identifying photocopy machine poses problem for Cuyahoga County official
Patterson: Photocopy? I'm sure in the time I've been there someone has used the term.
Marburger: And have you ever heard them use it in referencing a particular device or machine within the Recorder's office? By way of example, "can you photocopy that for me?" That's an example of office parlance.
Patterson: That particular terminology I've not witnessed.
Marburger: What was the context that you've heard the term "photocopy" used in the Recorder's office?
Patterson: I'm sure it's been used. I didn't say I remembered a specific instance.
Marburger: All right. But you have a general understanding that people have used the term "photocopy" within the Recorder's office in terms of something that could be done there; is that true?
Patterson: I'm sure it's been used. I don't remember a specific instance or how it was used. I'm sure it's been used.
Marburger: And is it fair to say that it's been used in terms of being able to copy one piece of paper onto another piece of paper using a machine? No? Not sure of that?

Last night my eight-year-old daughter and I enjoyed Pee-wee’s Big Holiday. This is a fantastic return for Pee-wee Herman, and Paul Reubens has done a masterful job. Pee-wee’s charm, innocence, and awesome moral compass are still keeping him out of trouble, despite a cast of delightfully troublesome characters that pop up along the way.
