Shining example of why small-talk can be dangerous

I just had this conversation with a co-worker of mine (whom we'll call The Duke). In order for the context of the conversation to make sense, I should mention that for some reason, The Duke is always tired...

Brian (jokingly): "Decaf Duke? You should try the regular and maybe you won't pass out at your desk all day.

Duke: "The caffeine would kill me."

Brian: "Ha that's funny. I hear that."

Duke (straight-faced): "No for real. My heart would give out. I can't have caffeine."

Fair enough. Although I don't think that was as awkward as this conversation. Donald still has the lead IMO.
