A deadpan, snarky response to an unbelievable series of events that is related to you by a friend
or co-worker. Taken from the classic Lee/Kirby issue of THE AVENGERS where Captain America
in the Arctic, having been frozen in a block of ice since the end of World
After he is thawed out, Cap relates the following tale: "By some fantastic stroke of fate, I must
have been frozen in an ice flow, and then found
by some eskimos who thought I was a supernatural object. Then, all those years, being in a state of frozen suspended
me from aging."
The rational response to all that malarky? "We believe you, Captain America
Frantic Guy: I'm sorry
I'm late! I was riding my bike here
got hit by a plane
making an emergency landing! I freaked out & slammed into a fire hydrant, flying over the handlebars
into the arms a visiting Sumo Wrestler!
You: We believe you, Captain America.
