An Accidental Joke

When GL is angry, which is often, in addition to awfulizing (screaming "M'aidez! Help! I'm bleeding!" when he can't find his shoe) he runs around screaming random accusations at people. We do our best to ignore these and focus on the real problem (if we can find it) because objecting only makes him worse. But sometimes his accusations are so absurd we have to laugh. GL rarely gets humor under the best of circumstances, but laughs because everyone else does, which puts him in a better mood. Some of his classic lines become family jokes.

The other day, in the middle of a long harangue, he screamed a BB, "You cheated me for a pig!"

Hey, let me know if I can borrow that phrase, just once in a while.

The odd thing is, I think I have kind of an idea what that might mean.

Should I be concerned?

Well, um, that depends... what to you think it means?

Oops, maybe I shouldn't have posted that. But in the interest of good sportsmanship, I'll play along.

It might be one of two things:

1. You cheated me by treating me as you'd treat a pig (perhaps pigs are gullible; easy to fool or cheat); or

2. I thought I was getting something of value; but no, what you gave me turned out to be only a pig.

Yeah I know, I over analyzed that. Still a great comment, and as you say a classic line / family joke for you all.

Or, here's a third possibility...
"You're a pig for cheating me" (only a pig would do that).
