Sigh, sometimes my parents don't get my puns.

We were, watching Lethal Weapon, and my dad said "There's a guy called Endo. I wonder if there's his brother Ando" (He's been watching Heroes). So I said "Maybe he was a watchmaker..." "What? Endo the... watchmaker?"

"No, Endo the Chronologist." It then took a wee while for myself and my dad to explain it.

Don't you understand? I'm sooo misunderstood!

I have to say, I was distinctly quiet once my mum wanted an explation of an endocrinologist. "Well, <name of dad> sees one, and I see one" wouldn't have been a good way to break the news. :P

That one made me want to puke.

and I got it straight off. Maybe it's trauma from O'Shea but I always think 'chronologist' with 'endo'.

Endochronology, the study of internal clocks?

It was your father's watch. He wanted you to have it.
