HA HA You're Old

So at work I am frequently made fun of because I am about 15 years younger than the next youngest and 35 years younger than the oldest. To get back at them I sometimes like to make them feel old.

(for the record, of COURSE I know who Paul Newman is and, though I have never seen it, I know that line is from that movie)

Boss: Haven't you seen Cool Hand Luke?
Me: I don't think so.
Boss: There is this line, "What we have here, is a failure to communicate."
Me: Oh, that's why you always say it weird.
Boss: The movie takes place in the south.
Me: Ah
Boss: Stars Paul Newman. You know who Paul Newman is right?
Thoughtful Pause
Me: The salad dressing guy?
Stares at me like I'm way too young to understand, then leaves the room.
