at thanksgiving dinner one year at my sisters house with her very far left female friends I was asked what is it like to live in Thailand? without skipping a beat I said in a completely serious way "It's great. I have my own death camp near the Myanmar border. It's a short drive from my house."

Once, just once...

Sigh.
