Who Does "Pinball Wizard?"

My wife and I were both at the kitchen table yesterday morning when the classic rock song "Pinball Wizard" started to play on the radio.

All I did was think to ask my wife, "Who does this song?" and I started laughing.

Naturally, she looked at me as if I were a moron and asked, "What's so funny?"

After another fit of laughter, I managed to say, "I was just thinking how funny it would be if I asked you, 'Who does this song?'"

"The Who does this song."

"No, no, you're supposed to say 'Yes.'"

"But Yes didn't do the song.  It was The Who," she said, earnestly.

The hilarity of the situation was more than I could bear.  Tears were forming in my eyes.  I couldn't speak, she was so stiflingly serious.

Annoyed she stated, "Well, I'm glad I don't have to occupy myself trying to keep you amused.  One less thing for me to worry about."

"But it's a joke!" I tried to explain, between gasps for air.

"It must be that anti-biotic you're taking.  Mental changes."

More laughter.

Eventually I managed to dry my eyes and leave for work.

You get it, don't you?

I got it Square Peg. But, it is not exactly my favourite song!

Thank you for letting me know you got it!

Here's a good reference to similar comedy routines:

Who’s on First? Everybody. Everybody.

My kind of humour, we banter back and forth like that between the two of us; so do the boys. But, yeah, it is not everyone's cup of tea. Laughter is the best medicine so it keeps us happy & healthier I believe!
