Hola, Sr. EXLMARK!
It seems that again you have posed an extremely difficult, though, interesting question.
Nobody has yet advanced any kind of a reply to it. I myself am quite puzzled as to what
the question is all about, though I find it most intriguing, especially considering the
prestige that surrounds the motion picture therein mentioned.

I'm not much of a movie-goer myself, as in fact, the last movie I saw of Mr. Peck was
"Mobydick". So, to find out what that movie in your post is, I asked a friend who is a true
movie-buff. He confidently told me that it must be the one called "How To Kill A Mocking
Bird", an old movie that won the Oscar for best movie and best actor for Mr.Peck.
This led me to ask myself-- If the movie is titled "How To Kill A Mocking Bird", then
I wonder what connection could possibly have "Tequila", a popular Mexican drink, with
killing a bird!. Frankly, I don't see any clear, much less sensible, connection existing
between the two items!
Or, am I just simply too naive for your usual odd ways, Sr. EXLMARK?
Saludos a Vd.
Señor Anónimo:
Usted, naive ? I say: Qué va ! No way ! Para nada ! A mí, me suena Ud. como

un hombre de talante bien serio, aquél que pertenece a esta calaña a que no le gusta
perder el tiempo con cosas trivias como el juego de "knoc-knock, who's there ?" .

De ser así el caso, me veo obligado a darle un poco de explicación sobre el "modus

operandi", as it were , que se aplica en este tipo de chistes:
"Knock-knock, who's there ?" is a popular PUN and FUN game played mostly
by young people — seldom engaged in by Oldies — whereby the sound of certain
English word or group of words is intentionally given a twist to make it sort of rhyme

with another word or group of words, as in this calssic example for instance:


Knock-knock !
— Who's there ?
— Me, May !
— May, who ?
— May I come in ?
Get the point ?

Ahora, on to my post:
Ud. preguntó qué conección tiene Tequila con el titulo de la pelicula. Efectivamente,
el titulo es: To Kill A Mockingbird (Matar A Un Sinsonte).

El chiste va así:
— Knock-knock !
— Who's there ?
— Tequila !
— Tequila, who ?
Tequila Mockingbird !
That is: If you listen to an American say the title To Kill A Mockingbird,
it would sound like: Tequila Mockingbird. (Tequila rhymes with To kill A)

Now, if you still don't get it, well...I give up !
Oh, antes de que me olvide, saludos a Usted. [H]
