Yes, I hear you asking-- don't I have a sense of humor?
As a matter of fact I do-- and I appreciate wit more than any other attribute among mankind-- but let's not confuse DUCK SOUP with THE HANGOVER.
It doesn't take wit to be an idiot.
MANY years ago we had a friend who had gotten so smitten with a girl that he gave up time to be with us to spend all his free time with her-- and she wasn't exactly a barrel of fun either. She bossed him around so much we all wondered what he saw in her.
When he got a front license plate at a mall kiosk that had his name and hers and proudly showed us we realized he had gone too far.
Being real friends, we replaced that plate with a nearly identical one-- only this one had the guy's name and the name of his old girlfriend on it. Identical in color and design-- when I attached the plate to the car I laughed myself silly over how clever we were.
We waited for days on end for him to react-- but there was no reaction. It wasn't until almost a year later that he walked into a place where I was standing and lunged at me for what seemed like no good reason, I dodged his first swing and asked him what his problem was.
By the second or third one he explained that he saw the plate-- and by now I had completely forgotten about it but laughed myself silly anyway.
Now that was a prank.
