Remember those Al Jaffee comics in Mad Magazine called "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions"? Here's my tribute to Al.
The other day I was going to lunch with a friend, and as I drove through the parking garage of the restaurant, I saw that someone in a pickup truck was backing out in front of me. So, I just waited for him to finish backing out and go on his way. As he passed by he said, "You got a problem???" This came from completely out of the blue, and all I could think to say was, "No, I was just waiting for you to back out." I wish I'd come up with one of the snappy answers you see here.
What happened next, though, was kind of exciting: My friend yelled "F*CK You!!!" At the guy, and then the guy said, "What did you say?" To which my friend replied, "I said F*CK YOU!!!" Then the guy said something else, and blah blah blah. Nothing happened. Sorry.
