Do You Respect Wood?

sadwoodDo you insist on using coasters?  Do you despise dusting, but do it religiously anyway?  Does your worst nightmare involve water rings on your favorite coffee table?  Do you respect wood? This line of questioning reminds me of an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.  Clips from that episode are below, but be forewarned that it is rated-R for language.
