A male statue on a museum pedestal watched with great interest as a female statue was placed beside him. "Hello, I'm made of exotic brown marble," he introduced himself.
"What is your background?"
"Oh, my background is impeccable," she answered. "I'm made of the finest ivory to be found anywhere on earth."
"You sure are beautiful! I know this is sudden, but I already care for you. Will you marry me?"
"How do I know you will always give me the respect that fine ivory deserves?" "Oh, my dear, I love you so much already, I could never take you for granite!"
