old family joke

When I spotted this, I was reminded of one of my father's jokes. It never ceases to amuse him.

The scene: Family car, driving down a road, somewhere, anywhere.

The actors: My father, me, and sometimes others

The action: I'm doing something - anything - talking, fiddling with the radio, eating a snack, whatever (except reading, 'cause that makes me carsick).

Father: Oh, hey!
Gullible me: What?
Father: Hey!
Me: Yes, I'm listening, what?
Father: Over there - it's a load of hay on a (trailer, truck, whatever).
Me: (rolls eyes)

Isn't my dad the punniest? I know he's secretly waiting with eager anticipation until my kids are old enough to appreciate this one.
