There are certain jokes, not particularly funny, which have become mandatory in and around Goat Rope Farm. Many though not all have their origin in movies. Over time, these have acquired an almost ritualistic significance and are triggered by certain conversational cues.
I am passing them on in case people out there are running short of ways of messing with and otherwise irritating the people they encounter.
Here's a sample:
*When someone comes up with a steaming pot and says "Coffee?," the obligatory reply is "Yes, I know." (Source: Airplane and the Naked Gun movies)
*When someone says "Can I ask you a question?," the obligatory reply is "You just did."
*When someone says "I'm going to go change," the obligatory reply is "Don't you go changing."
*Finally, anytime someone asks what to do with something or where to put it, the obligatory response (from Five Easy Pieces) is "Hold it between your knees."
TAXING FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS sounds like a winner, but it faces an uphill climb in the US.
