That's been one of my favorite inside jokes for over a decade.

I went to the San Diego zoo once when I was a little. We went on the safari tour (I think that's what they called it) and a baby rhino had just been born there. The tour guide stated that the baby rhino was "So unspeakably ugly, that he's cute."

I've used the analogy to describe ironic statements ever since.

I still thought that the baby rhino was funny because it's like saying a baby Weightlifter. I don't know, I just found it funny.

Wow, what a rude bunch. At least show some respect, when you are put on the spot with bad heckles like that it's difficult to come up with a good line on the spot. At least acknowedge that it DID work.

Yeah, but the way the person said it... sounds very... stupid? Most of them you can at least find a bit of humor in. I was having trouble with this one to tell if he was being serious or just trying to be stupid and type in something that would make everyone go [edited]?

Typically, you point out how stupid the heckle was, you don't come up with an equally stupid come-back.

I would have responded one of two ways:
1) "turn that tree into a rabbit"
How? Trees are non-sentient life forms made from loosely bonded cardon, nitrogen, and hydrogen. Rabbits on the other hand are sentient and are mostly carbon, oxygen, and magnesium. You can't convert that stuff man. A dog though - I could turn a dog into a rabbit.

2) "turn that tree into a rabbit"
Why? That's dumb.

Exactly.

Turn that tree into a rabbit.

I will, just hire me for a show. I promise for the right amount of money, I could turn just about anything here into whatever you want! (Say the second sentence in a sarcastic tone.)
