On the Chairlift

DAD: Get a phone call?

SCOTT: Nah, I'm just checking my mail.

DAD: Checking for fan-mail from a flounder?

SCOTT: Ha, sure.

DAD: That's from Rocky and Bullwinkle.

SCOTT: Ah. I had no idea what you were talking about.

DAD: It's a line.

SCOTT: Is it a joke?

DAD: I dunno.

SCOTT: Fin-mail from a flounder. That would be funny. Kind of.

DAD: Did you hear about Sugarloaf?


DAD: Where all those chairlifts fell down?

SCOTT: Right! How'd that happen?

DAD: Cable snapped or something.

SCOTT: Hmm. And since then, many have blamed Sarah Palin's anti-cable rhetoric for the incident.

DAD: Was that a joke?

SCOTT: Funnier than your flounder e-mail line.
