sent my dad a pic of me doing some random, innocuous thing one day.  Got a reply hours later that said "I got that picture.  I resent that."  Spent the evening talking to my wife about what could possibly be offensive about the picture I had sent or what I had said along with it.

So the next day I asked him, a little tenderly, since I was still in the dark.

"Dad, what did you resent about that picture."
"What?  That picture?  Yeah, I resent it to your Aunt Carmella."

Subby here.  This is my only post in 25 years of lurking on Fark.  So technically it's my best effort.  It could all be downhill from here.

The president tried to flee the FBI agents using his lumbering frame, but a small, female agent delivered a riposte; turning his body by his wrist and delivering a powerful kick to his hind-quarters to send him back into security zone. Twinkies were deployed en masse to maintain subjugation.  He was happy.

That reminds me of the rapier wit of William Cosby.

Did he make this joke already?  Well, that just makes this another riposte!

Man - I let off a good riposte this morning, I tell ya!
It cut right into the nostril bones of everyone at that celebrity roast.

For once, the word is used correctly in the headline when not read as a really bad homophone.

This probably will end up warranting a badge, so I want to take part...

Don't be so homophonic.

I was trying to make up a D&D pun but I don't think I have a horse in this race.

Please follow up right now with a repost of this and a much worse headline. Just go all-in Hero to Zero.

No, but it had just occurred to me that only relatively recently could you refer to Cosby's wit as 'rapier'.  I just needed something to coattail it onto.

It's defined in Webster's, so now I doubt the existence of fencing, fencing, and counterattacks.
