And Then...

...the big scary dinosaur reached his hand through the office window and made off with Johnny's beer.

I have a completely unrelated question.

The comeback "I know you are, but what am I?"...what does it mean? When to use it? When not to use it? Etc. Enlighten me!

Marjolein -- Welcome back! I hope you are feeling much better. Please check in often and I will try to make you laugh.

HPH -- You have to be really old to qualify for them. (Almost as old as... The AssVac!)

Beardo -- Oh yay, peurile humor! My favorite!

Basically, if someone insults you, "I know you are but what am I?" is the snappiest comeback on the playground. Slams the insult right back at the insulter in a manner that ought to make any insulted seven-year-old proud.

"You're a poopiehead!"

"I know you are, but what am I?"

"A stinker!"

"I know you are, but what am I?"

"A dinky!"

"I know you are, but what am I?"

You see? Endlessly, circularly useful. A distant, slightly less elegant relative of "I'm rubber, you're glue; whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you!"

Oh, that is one of my favourite sayings (I know you are but what am I).

EGE said...

Oh, damn.

Puerile. P-U-E-R-I-L-E. Puerile.

I always do that.

Always.
