my friend was telling a story today about a time he went to the gym and there was a super jacked beefy dude on a machine. and a guy comes in who is equally ripped, just completely chiseled from stone, and he goes up to the shorter beefy dude and say "nice lift! i'm trying to get big like you!" and the other guy says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and the first guy steps a little bit closer and says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and the short guy stands up and says "i'm trying to get big like YOU!" and this continues until they hug and slap each other on the back, still repeating the phrase

"The defvar special form is similar to setq in that it sets the value of a variable. It is unlike setq in two ways: first, it only sets the value of the variable if the variable does not already have a value.
