The Icthyophilist

onceupunatimeblueCab drivers in Boston, the USA version, not the original East Anglian home, are rumoured to be the most highly educated of all the Cab Drivers in All the World.

So educated that they would probably know a next line to that mangled quote.

Anyway, a noted world-famous icthyophilist gets into a cab at Boston’s Logan airport and asks the cabbie, “Hey, do you know where I can get scrod around here?”

The cabbie says, “Yeah, but I never heard it in the past pluperfect before!”

  1. First, you have to know what scrod is. Then, you have to understand past pluperfect, which requires knowledge of Latin. You must be over, educated, like me, to even get this joke.
