When friends, relatives or co-workers present you with a newborn to admire, be sure to say, “Ahhh, the REAL royal baby!”
It's SR web maven Ryan Pitts.
You should do whatever it takes, including bribes if necessary, to follow him on Twitter.
A couple of other SR editors with dry wits are close on his heels. But Ryan makes me smile every day.
A cashier asked me if I wanted to hear an off-color story.
He might have said “joke.” But I think he said “story.”
“What?” I said.
He repeated the question.
Now, this cashier is a person I have dealt with many times. He seems sane. I like to think we enjoy a nice rapport.
I had no reason to suspect that the humor stylings in question would involve anything truly creepy. And I didn't want him to feel like I was judging him harshly for even suggesting it.
So I said “Sure.”
The joke turned out to be pretty tame. Garden variety dirty-joke stuff. He was reminded of it by one of the food items I was purchasing. I was not offended.
What would you have said if asked if you wanted to hear an off-color joke?
