Conversation Between a Tape Cassette and a Vinyl Record

– What is so great about being a vinyl record that makes people want to listen to you still?”

– I guess it’s because I’m vintage.

– Vintage?

– Yeah, it’s like an old thing that is appreciated for its quality and character.

– That describes the tape cassette!  I’m vintage!

– No, you’re not.

– That’s comforting at least.
