The incessant question used by passengers to incite the driver of a vehicle to distraction. This inquiry results in more accidents and divorces than cell phone usage and internet use combined. The only correct defense from the insanity induced by the constant inquiry is, "It's at least another hour." even when the destination is only another 5 minutes.
Q: "Are we there yet"
A: "It's at LEAST another hour..."

A phrase existing for as long as there have been children and vehicles.
Family vacation in car - child in backseat calls out repetitively, ad nauseum, "Are we there yet?" This phrase is generally followed by ultimate adult frustrationa and the phrase, "Don't make me pull this car over!"

Sort of emo-ish shorthand for "God, I wish I had a girlfriend/boyfriend" and is said randomly at a really slow party or spouted on a whim to the stranger on a bus next to you. (The last one is fuuuuuun!)
Should be used when hyper/drunk/high/or just when you're bored and feel like shaking your best friend up.
(can also be used as a charming pick-up line before youv'e met someone)
bored guy 1"Doood, I'm sooooo bored."
bored Guy 2: "Dood, nothing's going on"

Both sit up, and say at the same time:
"Are we in love yet?"
okay...this is awkward...

"Are we having fun yet?" is the most famous quote by bizarre, non-sequitur-spouting comic strip character Zippy the Pinhead.
It was coined in 1979 by cartoonist Bill Griffith as one of the typically strange comments by Zippy, and caught on with the general public.
Guy to co-worker at boring job: "Hey Gus, how's it going?"
The reply, accompanied by eye-rolling and sarcastic tone: "Are we having fun yet?"

Sarcastic remark used to let somebody know that their promises of fun haven't materialized, and that if this is their idea of fun, then they have a very twisted concept of what "fun" is.
Dad drags his son to a museum, promising that it'll be fun. When they arrive, the son is, unsurprisingly enough, really bored.

Son: (in bored voice) Dad, are we having fun yet?
