Every family has it's own personality, if you will. Their own mode of operation and their own sense of humor. Our family has a goofy habit of making up our own wordplay type jokes. For instance we might take a word and add to it another crazy word to make up a really outlandish compound word. We especially like to update normal phrases to make them all goofy and new.
We all get in on the game and elaborate on each other's attempts at the game. It can get really crazy. Anyone listening to us might think we'd all gone absolutely bonkers. But we have fun with it and it's something that makes us each feel like we belong in this family.
