Not that I know of...

Post by RCC: Act II » Thu Jan 18, 2018 1:07 pm

Lets say you find out that you have a twenty-three year old daughter because these things will happen now and then, especially then when the mother decided to just not tell you because you were from out of town and someone else she actually liked was willing to raise the kid.

1) Does that make the times in the past you made the "not that I know of" joke about having any (other) children:

a) funnier
b) regrettable
c) prophetic
d) just plain spooky
e) thank Ed you didn't have to pay all that child support
f) all of the above

2) Is using that phrase in the future appropriate?

Sure, a friend :roll:

1: I'd say sad
2: You could elaborate: "Not that I ... wait a minute"

I have no useful opinion about the other stuff, but it was never a funny trope in the first place.

It actually is for a friend. Guy I was on the golf and wrestling teams with in high school. Kid is way better off with someone else as a father imo though.

I don't know. Sounds like your friend managed to pass on his genes without any hassle.
Has it been confirmed with DNA evidence?
For the other guy, that's the original and true meaning of "cuck", not the new stupid one.

f, not as in "fun."

1) Ironic!
2) No because it's not true any more.

How did this golf/wrestling buddy find out about the daughter?
