How I got to writing this….
I was talking to a friend and joking. I made a pretty bad pun and said, “It’s a joke, oui (wee)?” I say that to my kids when they tell a lamer, holding my hand up with my index finger close to my thumb in the gesture we know to mean “little”. It’s a double-entendre – a sentence or phrase with two meanings. The first is simply, “It’s a joke, yes? (oui)”, and the second is, “It’s a really wee (small) joke – not very funny at that.”
