I created this nodeshell upon remembering the joke, wishing to fill it after I finished my "research" - the research involving calling up the friends who were there when this joke was told for the hundredth time, and everyone put in their 2 cents worth. And ariels comes and beats me to it. So I shall just add the less obvious ones:
