An Effective Comeback

I think this tale from the genera of blistering combacks is old. I remember it, but cannot find it in the archives. Thanks to Bill Pardue for this version.

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 a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors – green, red, orange, and blue. My Dad kept staring at her. The teenager kept looking and would find my Dad staring every time.

When the teenager had 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 that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have a good one!

In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid …. “Got stoned once and screwed a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my daughter.”
