When you receive a “Nuclear missile is heading towards your city & will arrive in 30 minutes.” As you head into the nuclear bunker, you ask an official, “This isn’t that surprising attack from Canada ‘cause they had had enough?”

When you’re about to board a 15-hour flight to New Zealand & ask your partner, “You did turn off the stove after cooking breakfast?”

As you’re about to head into open heart surgery and ask the head surgeon who looks all of 15 years old, “You have done this before?”
