Last night John and I were playing with his K'nex. We were building robots, who we would then pose and make the other person guess what they were doing.
I put a long K'nex in my robot's hands and pulled it over its shoulder. I thought it was fairly obvious that it was playing baseball. But I was wrong.
John: Is it holding a flag?
John: Is it holding a banner?
Me: No, not that either.
John: Is it taking off all its clothes running down the street singing "The Star-Spangled Banner?"
Apparently I'd used that phrase before, in an unrelated context, many months ago. See, kids DO listen to what you say.
