of course i am assuming this is a conversation between father & son =)
son: calypso's grandpap passed away over the weekend. now we have to go to the funeral and all that stuff...
father: ahw. i'm sorry to hear it. dang
son: well, i figured it was about time i bought one of these here contraptions for such an occasion - but i can't figure out how to tie it...
father: you don't know how to tie a tie? that's funny
son: you know what else would be funny? if i strangled you with it. now help me tie this up dorkus maximus
father: it's real simple...watch...over-under-then over again-up through-down through hoop-and yank...
father: there! how do you feel?
son: ack! i feel like i'm being force choked by powers of authority
father: well, that's how you know it's tied right.
