Daddy Dumber Than Daffy Duck

You know that cartoon gag where Bugs gets the better of Daffy by mixing him up?

Daffy: “You take the bomb!”
Bugs: “No, I insist, you take the bomb!”
Daffy: “No, you take the bomb!”
Bugs: “No, I take the bomb!”
Daffy: “I said I take the bomb and that’s final!”
Bugs: “Well, all right then!”

Cue hilarious explosion that drives Daffy’s bill back into his head. (An injury, fortunately, that can be simply shaken out.)

Well, it turns out that that gag doesn’t work in reality.

Me: “That’s my cookie.”
Boobaby: “No, that’s my cookie.”
Me: “No, that’s my cookie.”
Boobaby: “No, that’s my cookie.”
Me: “No, that’s your cookie.”
Boobaby: “Yes. That’s my cookie. And that one’s mine, too.”

Sigh. Yet another way in which life does not imitate art.
