Well, you satisfied one of the two conditions stated in the title of the thread. That was most definitely a reply.

Not so much a reply to a question, but more of a prompt response to an insult:

I was in Westwood Village this morning, and I walked past a (male) runner who was jogging on the spot at an intersection waiting to cross Wilshire Boulevard. The windows of a car waiting at the stoplights were suddenly were wound down and a loud chorus of FAGGOT!!!!! and similar commentary came from the four lads inside, obviously directed at the unfortunate runner, probably because he happened to be wearing a rather skimpy pair of shorts. The runner instantly yelled back "It takes one to know one!" followed quickly after by "sorry lads, but you're out of luck!!". This prompted a volley of angry Neanderthal-sounding shrieks from the car, which were then immediately drowned out by revving engines as the lights changed. The runner, totally unfazed, continued on his way. I reckoned it was probably a stock response he had for insults hurled fom car windows by jerks, but funny nonetheless. Sheesh, there are some creeps around.

When someone says to you "I got a question for you" you say "For how much?" as in a game show. Then after a few more times you say sharply "For how much? Nothing is free"

"Monkey's butt?"

one of the best answers to give to any question is "affirmative", or "yes" (to the syllablly challenged), or some other affirming phrase. Sometimes a negative phrase is good, but they often just come out harsh, and not witty. ex:

Do you know what time it is?
yes.

How old are you?
affirmative.

Can you help me with this problem?
i agree with you.

--

If you were a color, what color would you be?
i disagree with you.

--

its also funny to respond to a question with an overly elaborate shield of words. these work better in speech tho, and not so well intext. ex:

Where were you born?
There is no evidence relating me to any such information. And furthermore, I'm offended by the accusation. I didn't do it. Nobody saw me do it. And you can't prove anything. You should speak to my lawyer if you need further explanation.

There are no fags in Westwood. They're in Exposition Park. And they like to wear burgundy and gold.

There are quite a few drunk college chicks in Westwood, tho. God bless them.

The one time anyone yelled "fag" at me was in West Hollywood when I was running. It was the typical bunch of jerks; two guys in a Jeep with their girlfriends. Since it was at a light in front of a busy restaurant, (and since I could have easily stomped a big hole in their puny, acne covered pusses, if I wanted to) I just looked over at them and said "DUH! Your're in fu@king West Hollywood, what did you expect to find, migrating wildebeest?

They didn't have a comeback for that.

I've been touring college towns recently and noticed a much higher incidence of blatant homosexuality than in "normal" towns.

Fine and good with me. I don't mind that my brother is gay, it just means I won't get any nephews.

Then comes along a group of young ladies with the Zombie Makeup on (seen three or four of those cliques) and I'll be darned if one of them wasn't wearing a dog collar. With a license.
