Every Family Should Have Some Unifying Sarcasm

We have a few family sayings, mostly stolen from movies, that get trotted out now and then.
“I love you more than puppies and rainbows and alligators and plaid golf pants.”
Responding to the “Mom, I can’t find . . .” plea for help. “Look with your eyes, not with your psychic ability.”
After the girls fail to put on a seat belt. “How long have you been riding in the magical moving box?”
When agreeing that something is awesome, “Woot, Woot” and response, “Woot Woot indeed!
Discovering the girls engaged in any activity which has the potential to injure or make a mess. “Stop. Turn. Explain.”
When doing anything annoying, “Would you please, for the love of all that is holy and for your own body, stop it!”
Responding to being called “Children of the Corn.” “Yes, mother of the corn.”
Concurring with a statement or responding to an answer. “Damn Skippy.”
