I'll start.

"I think they should make the arches in the McDonald's logo fatter," Tom said emphatically.

"I love Christmas wreaths, " opined Tom.

I had never heard of this phenomenon and had to look it up. Took a little while to really get it, and to decipher your last one. In related news, a med school classmate of mine was a dead ringer for Adam Duritz. Uncanny.
