At a wedding last night, we sat with a sarcastic, push-the-envelope, non P.C. group of friends.
Pie was served for dessert. Yum!
Carrie: I don’t like pie.
Bill: You don’t like PIE? How can you not like pie?
Carrie: I just don’t care for it.
Bill: But, this is APPLE pie.
Carrie: I know. You can have my piece.
Bill: Are you un-American? Do you not support America? (said tongue-in-cheek)
Things escalated (or took a nose dive) from there. Many jokes about the un-American nature of not liking apple pie. Is she even American? Is she a terrorist?
Obviously this is ridiculous. Her feelings about apple pie have nothing to do with her loyalty to America. This is what they were making fun of.
However, it felt like the extra funny bit at the end of a TV show after the credits.
