"Oh let's see here...AH! No, you can't play number 8. Or 15. Or 21. Or 27. Uh-oh...34, 35 and 36 are DEFINITELY out. Hmmm. Just to be sure, let's toss out number 1. And 3. And 6. And 11. And 12. And 13. Aw heck, this is getting to be a bit complicated. I'll tell ya what; you're not allowed to play ANY number below 28, or above 34. Okay, all done here!

Next?"
