My daughter is 14 years old, and thus there are a few things she’s totally into: Vinyl albums.  Mixed plaids.  Starbucks coffee.  Y’know, all the things that defined my college experience, really…  Still, with the frequency we visit the local ‘Bucks, we’ve developed a number of running jokes (also proof that she’s really my kid.)  She will order an Ariana Grande coffee, I order an Arian Venti and we’re both happy for silly reasons.  When it comes to a dumb joke you love, the beauty is in the eye of the beholder, leading to today’s recurring query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) understands that a ‘Tall’ is the smallest one, but she’s literally TALL which is a joke within a joke, asking: What’s the dumbest dumb joke you love the most?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    Striker: This plane has four engines. It’s an entirely different kind of flying. Altogether.

    All: “It’s an entirely different kind of flying.”
