A bit more about The Book of Wrong Answers
The title started as a joke at first.
I would say something completely wrong, inappropriate and perhaps a bit insensitive.
I would notice Laura’s face and understand right away: Whatever I said came from The Book of Wrong Answers.
Eventually this became shortened to “What book did you get that one dear?”
Everything that’s short can be expanded upon.

George Costanza does the opposite. This, I believe to be self explanatory:
One Derful Thing
Frequently during family gatherings my father and I like to pretend we are George and Jerry on Seinfeld.
You like to pretend you’re George and Jerry?
We like to pretend we’re George and Jerry?
You like to pretend you’re George and Jerry.
It gets annoying
It gets annoying?
It does. It gets annoying.
