Long ago, Al Jaffee came up with a new piece for MAD: Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions (known as SATSQ in some cultures). I haven't seen any for a while (but that doesn't mean there haven't been any... there could have been a new book fulla them and I'd probably miss it), so at this page, you can create your own and add them! Wowy zowy! To get you started, I've included a couple from a SATSQ book published waaaaay back in 1968.

Below This Line Of Text Are Examples...

Q: Did you catch that fish?
A: No, I talked him into giving himself up.
A: No, I was sitting here minding my own business when the crazy thing jumped into my pail.
A: No, it's a plastic model to get people like you to start fascinating conversations.

Q: (from a woman just pulled over by a police officer) Did I do something wrong, officer?
A: No, today we're giving tickets out for doing things right.
A: No, I just got tired of lugging around these heavy summonses so I decided to give some of them away.
A: No, I'm giving a ticket to this crazy street because it's going the wrong way.

Q: (from a waiter, to a husband and wife) Table for how many?
A: A hundred and twelve -- we like to change seats every few minutes.
A: One -- my wife will sit on my shoulders.
A: I don't know -- I can't count that high, either.

Now, create one (or, dare I say, two!) of your own and post it in the MAD forum! Fa!
