For instance, over winter break my father had decided that some sort of familial bonding was in order, so we went to the zoo to do what all families do when they want to re-connect: look at massive wild animals doing it.

He is a groovy dude in person and incredibly nice, but he was not cool with this one girl asking if she could lick his boomstick (can't really fault him for that one). Also, he admired my stylish fedora.
Bleh, need more tissues (nearly at 100 posts!) this is Sugary Cynic saying "Blaaaachooo! EVAAAAAAN!!" 'Night!
Me: "So can you sign this for my brother? He's your biggest fan who still maintains a basic level of hygiene, also he won't stop singing that song from your movie (My Name is Bruce) about Quan-Di,"
Bruce: (shrugs charmingly) "Well, Quan-Di is his name (this is a line from the song)"
Me: "Yeah, I've heard...
