So this guy goes into a bar with a salamander-type-thing on his shoulder.
The bartender asks, "Hey, what's that salamander-type-thing on your shoulder?"
The guy replies, "It's a newt."
The bartender inquires, "Has your newt there got a name?"
The guy says, "Yes, his name is Tiny."
The bartender frowns. "Tiny... Why'd you name him Tiny?"
The guy grins and says, "Because he's my newt!"
