Ok, I'll start:

(With all due apologies to the original questioner).

Is it a news story if it does not show up on a national TV news show?

And if does appear on a national TV news show which is considered second-rate would it be newsworthy or just for the ratings?

Posing into a question:
I thought you left?

Answering a question with a question:

What made you think that, just because I am absent does not mean I left, don't you think that is a possibility considering many possibilities?

If you are talking about not knowing what you are talking about, all could be relative or figurative...would you like to hear Platonic reasoning or what philosophy do you suggest we use in answering that question?

Maybe, but more to the point, isnt it impressive how this derailed so quickly?

Or is it unimpressive that it is so difficult to get it back on track?

Is putting a thread back on track newsworthy?
