Q: What did the stick say to the pail?
A: Nothing. They are both incapable of communicating.
They just sat there getting rusty and old.
Lifeless. Unable to move on their own.
Simple, inanimate objects.
If they had a voice, I imagine the stick would say to the pail,
“Hey, you look a little pale!”
And, the pail would reply, “c’mere, stick, so that I can hit you with yourself!” :)
And the audience (the lifeless chairs and trash cans) would laugh and laugh.
