The Ultimate Comeback to “Idaho? No, You Da H**”
If you've lived in Idaho, visited Idaho, know someone from Idaho, or have even once said the word "Idaho," you've heard the joke:
Idaho? More like...YOU da h** hahahahahahaha!
It's awful. It's the easiest, most braindead bottom-of-the-barrel punchline in existence. If this "joke" was a flavor, it'd be black licorice. And you know nobody likes that stuff.
You've heard the joke 100,000 times, but what can you do about it? Since you can't (legally) physically prevent someone from saying it, what other options are there?
We pooled together a team of experts (let's go with that), and after hundreds of man-hours and calculations, a proper response to the terrible Idaho joke has been discovered.
Be warned, this is a very severe response, but it's the only one scientifically (probably) proven to give you the upper hand in this annoying exchange. Ready? Here we go.
When someone utters the Idaho joke to you, there's only one way to let them know the terrible thing they've done. There's a few steps, so pay attention.
- First, don't give a verbal response. Look them dead in the eye like you would look at a child who got caught stealing, turn, and walk away
- Next, delete said person from your phone and all social media. Take their address out of your Rolodex while you're at it. They're definitely not getting a Christmas card
- Finally, reward yourself with some chocolate or a tasty cocktail. You've been through trauma and you deserve it
While this may seem stern, it truly is the only way.
It's a terrible joke, and you shouldn't associate yourself with someone who stoops so low. Also, they called you a h**. Don't put up with that.
