The practice of answering every question you are asked with a repetitive question or statement, whether it makes sense to or not.

It is practiced widely in the stoner world and has it's roots with Tommy Chong from the Cheech and Chong movies and from his time on That 70's Show.

This is based on the basic belief that Socrates is the father of modern thought and that his philosophic teachings were based upon answering a student's question with a probing question in order to get the student to realize their own answer.

Only in this case it serves as a comedic outlet while you are impaired by pot or alcohol.
Tommy Chong is a Socratic Method-Actor since he can answer any question with the same question and make it funny.

Me: What are you doing here?
Tommy Chong: What are YOU doing here?

Me: Why are you smiling?
Tommy Chong: Why are YOU smiling?

Me: Are you stoned?
Tommy Chong: Are YOU stoned?

Me: What are you doing in Mexico?
Tommy Chong: What are YOU doing in Mexico?
