320: 28-Hour Day
Title text: Small print: this schedule will eventually drive one stark raving mad.

The 28-Hour Day is a modified sleep schedule proposed to accommodate the discrepancy between the earth's day-night cycle and certain people's preferred sleep schedules. It discards the traditional notion of sleeping at night and replaces it with sleeping when it is more convenient for weekend parties and mid-week insomnia.
The second person shows little interest in this idea, and instead resorts to low-quality "your mom" jokes. The first person successfully slays this with his last line.
The title-text uses "Small print" to mean "Disclaimer" and relieves the idea's creator of any responsibility in the case that it is tried and the tester finds the schedule to be a really bad idea.

- [There is a diagram which shows the hours in a week. It has sections labeled "bed" and below has sections labeled "night." They do not line up.]
- [Two men are talking together.]
- First man: You have trouble sleeping right?
- Second man: Only when your mom is over.
- [First man is now pointing to a chart.]
- First man: Since your work is flexible-
- Second Man: -Like your mom-
- First Man: -you should try the 28-hour day - 20 awake, 8 asleep (or 19/9 if you prefer).
- Second Man: I prefer your mom.
- First Man: It synchs up with the week - you spend weekdays awake normally, then on weekends you can go out all night.
- Second Man: Just like your mom.
- First Man: It means four extra hours daily. You can stay up until you're exhausted every day and then spend a full 9 hours asleep each night!
- Second Man: But how much time can I spend doing your mom?
- First Man: You? I'm guessing three or four minutes, tops.
- Second Man: ...Well played.
