Bad Jokes Will Be Avenged

| Friendly | January 19, 2016

(I’m meeting with an ex with whom I’m still on good terms. We’re having coffee in a busy restaurant and are seated at a large table; there’s a woman sitting next to us. I have just told my ex a Marvel-related joke, which the woman also heard and found very funny. A while later, she is joined by a man I presume is her boyfriend.)

Man: “Excuse me, I don’t want to intrude, but I’ve been having a really bad day and my girlfriend told me you had a great joke. Can I hear it?”

Me: *surprised* “Sure. It’s in English, is that a problem?”

Man: “Nah.”

Me: “Okay. What’s Captain America’s shield made of?”

Man: “Vibranium.”

Me: “Right, What’s Hawkeye’s shield made of?”

Man: “Um, iron?”

Me: “No, Quicksilver.”

(The guy had a great laugh and told me I made his day.)
