Having a relaxing sit down after a big birthday meal, the family sat around making light conversation. Somehow the topic of unfortunate names came up. In an attempt to top everyone's contributions Rick began to tell us about a pair of customers from his former company that he worked for...
Rick: "So get this, right? She pulled up the account and his name was Right Ball!"
Aunt Bev: "No way, nuh huh!"
Rick: "I kid you not! But even worse, he had a brother who was also a customer and right there on the computer screen was his name - Left Ball!"
Aunt Edie: "That's terrible. Who would name their kids that?"
and just as the snickering had begun to settle down
Rick: "I know, Right and Left Ball," shaking his head in disbelief, "Isn't that nuts?!"
And in that moment arose the greatest kind of comedic genius; the unintentional perfect punchline. All of us died right then and there while it took Rick just a brief second to catch up to his own joke. However when the connection was made, his face contorted into the best kind of red-faced, tear inducing belly laughter.
