Friday Funny

The Perfect Comeback

I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes (he is 66).  We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching someone sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colours - green, red, orange and blue - and my dad kept staring at her. The teen would look over to find my dad staring, every time. When she'd finally had enough, she sarcastically asked:

"What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?"

Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so I wouldn't choke on his response - I knew he'd have a good one!

In classic style, he responded without batting an eyelid:

"Got stoned once and had sex with a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my daughter."

Big thanks to S for this one - it arrived at the exact moment I needed a laugh, hugs!

Gawd!! That was priceless. Your dad is so witty, that was one nice comeback worthy of two drum taps and a cymbal crash.

Seriously. I was blogging 2am in the morning when I laughed out so loud I woke my husband who was nodding off to sleep downstairs, heard him swear, and I also caused a number of dogs to bark from across the street.

Thanks for the laugh!
