    Especially not if Herbie thinks intubation is only for unconscious
people.  Better watch those asthmatic kids close, Herbie, cause when
they lose consciousness you've got about 30 seconds before their heart
quits, too.  So don't blink, and I hope you're really fast and have
three eyes.  Cause if you're not, you're going to be sued into
oblivion.  And deserve it.
