Pipe Dreams

Me: Well, you know, all these grandkids you’re gonna have might be loud. Maybe when we get our palatial estate by the beach, we should have me and Mrs. P in one house and you and Dad in another.

Ma Smash:
Oh, I’ll be deaf as a haddock. It won’t matter.

Me: A … haddock?

Ma Smash: Yup.

Me: How deaf is a haddock exactly?

Ma Smash:
Oh, totally deaf. They have no ears. Go take a peek. I’ll wait.

Yes, good idea. I’ll go take a peek at the many haddock I have on hand.

Ma Smash:
Go ask the neighbors. Norwegians love fish!
