There is always low hanging fruit
I have been joking with, lampooning to, and being lightly nonsensical for the edification of library patrons for nearly 25 years now at the front desk. So when someone came to me over by the cash register, handed me a one dollar bill saying "Break this?", and I took the bill, hurled it as hard as I could at the counter, and said "Hmm, wouldn't break. Would change work?" I was surprised.
I was not surprised at his moderately amused chuckle.
I was not surprised at my flimsy pun silliness.
I was surprised, nay, almost shocked, that I had never, in all the many years and opportunities, employed such a ridiculously obvious gag before.
Give it a few years and I may even try it again.
