Nothing rattles my father-in-law, especially when he' s in front of the TV and a good movie is on.

One day we were watching a classic, when my mother-in-law shrieked from the kitchen, "JIM! There's a horsefly in here!"

Not even taking his eyes off the screen, my father-in-law barked back, "Give it some cough syrup!"

WORD for YOUR WEEK: Did you ever give someone the "third degree"? No one knows for sure where this term originated, but the best guess is it comes to us from the Freemasons.
