On asking Good Questions, A Bit of Wisdom from Peter Sellers

Peter Sellers: (asks the Bavarian Innkeeper) Does your dog bite?

Innkeeper: No.

Peter Sellers: Nice doggie (Peter Sellers pets dog. Dachshund snarls and bites him)

Peter Sellers: I thought you said your dog didn't bite!

Innkeeper: That, is not my dog.

Lesson? Ask good questions to get to the root of the answer you are looking for.
