  •  i've used family in-jokes as song titles more than (6+ / 0-)

    once

    going back 40 plus years, my little sister and my littler niece (she was about 4) were in the floor playing with dolls as my evil step-father, jack, sat there reading the newspaper

    they were giving names to different dolls and extolling the virtues of the different names:
    "i like billy! this one's billy!"
    "bobby's my favorite! this one is scott!..."

    just then, my little niece looked up at the scary monster in the overstuffed chair and said:

    "...uh, jack's a good name, too!"

    jack's a good name, too!
