    Was he reading about what the acorn said when he grew up?

    “Ge-om-e-try” (“Gee, I’m a tree.”)

    Gal is angling for a date. She loves cerebral. A twist on a catchphrase over hundred years old and still kicking.

    Wikipedia’s article on the phrase says that “Oh, you kid!” was hottest in 1908 and ’09, when at least two Tin Pan Alley songs used it and won fame. (I know one of them.) The article says this about the more successful song: that it

    " . . . became a succès de scandale in 1909, and brought some public censure. It was vehemently denounced by prominent evangelist Billy Sunday. The phrase “Oh! You Kid!” became ubiquitous.

    “It also led to legal action. A farmer in Missouri who sent a woman a postcard saying ‘I Love My Wife, But Oh You Kid!’ was given a fine for sending improper matter through the mail. A judge in Los Angeles ruled that anyone using the salutation ‘Oh, you kid!’ in public should be imprisoned on a charge of disturbing the peace, and a magistrate in Pittsburgh said that anyone using the phrase in public should be whipped. In Atlanta, a man was shot by a woman’s husband for crying ‘Oh, you kid!’ towards her; the gunman was released without charge.”

    Humor is definitely subjective.
