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.
Me: 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!
