A practical programmer explains OOP

This brought to mind my introduction to OOP by a talented
but notoriously inarticulate programmer:
NIP: Do you know what OOP is?
NIP: Ah. Well, you have objects and methods.
Objects: objects aren't anything. And
methods are how you talk to objects.
I knew there was no point in asking questions -- this was
the man at his most expository. I took him to mean, "Forget
what objects *are*, just work with them."
