Years ago when my family first got a VCR and started renting movies, my dad made a beeline for all of the Rocky and Bullwinkle titles he could find. And for good cause: they are full of the corny jokes and clever puns that my family’s humor has revolved around for years.
(Today all the Rocky & Bullwinkle episodes are available to stream on Hulu. But I digress.)
Out of all the amazing and lame and cheesy puns and jokes from Rocky and Bullwinkle, there was one that has stuck with me to the point that I now use it in every day conversation. The joke goes something like this:
Bullwinkle: Twenty dollars?!? That’s antihistamine money!
Rocky: Antihistamine money?
Bullwinkle: Yes. It’s not to be sneezed at. Get it? Not to be sneezed at?
Rocky: I get it.
Bullwinkle: Thousands won’t.
So there you go.
