Of course, only my wife snickers a little bit (more of the "laughing at me, not laughing with me variety of laughter"), but my daughter completely didn't get it until I explained it to her.
And I thought that was David Carradine (aka Kwai Chang Caine)...
Yes! You're right. David Carradine, the Kung Fu fighter, or whatever he was.
I do the same "10 point!" thing, and I'm pretty sure that 99.9% of the people that hear me have no idea what I'm talking about. But that's the best sort of humor, isn't it. Personal humor where you can snicker to yourself in your own little world.
In fact, 10 addtional points if you can figure out where my forum name comes from. The phase under it is a big clue. That was the name (and phrase) on my boat and about once every few months someone would see it and burst out laughing. I'd see everyone else just stare at it, mouth the words, shrug their shoulders and move on. But it was worth it for that one person in a 100 that got it. Of course my family thought I was just lame.
