Flashback to the 1880’s on a ranch out in the country.
Two young women, Amy and Anna, are standing outside on a beautiful day. Amy turns to Anna and says, “You see all this land, that goes as far as the eye can see? My daddy left that to me when he passed away”
Anna looks out at all the land and turns back to her friend responding, “How nice.”
Amy goes on to say, “You see all this livestock, and all the crops, my daddy left this to me.”
Anna again responds with a simple “How nice”.
Amy continues, “You see that beautiful house, the wagons, everything in the house, my daddy left it all to me.”
Anna glances around at everything and again a simple “How nice”, is all she says.
Amy, not pleased with her friends lack of enthusiasm, asks, “Well, what did your daddy leave you?”
Without a pause Anna looks at he friend and says, “My daddy didn’t have a lot of money or nice things to leave me, instead he sent me to finishing school where they taught me to say How Nice instead of Fuck You.”
~My aunt told me this joke and it still cracks me up…it’s kind of like how in the south you can say anything about someone as long as you end it with ‘Bless Your Heart”.
I’ll show you, it works every time (now you have to say it with a smile for it to really work ;) ) :
“She’s dumb as a box of rock, bless her heart”
