    Smile Ace Ventura quote

    Hello guys,
    Yesterday I watched Ace Ventura When Nature calls.In my opinion it's one of the greatest comedies ever made.However there's one joke I didn't catch :
    Attendant: Peanuts?Ace Ventura: [looks down] Yes, I have one right here. It's bulky, but I consider it carry-on.Attendant: [holding bag of peanuts] Peanuts.Ace Ventura: Oh, I see.So can you guys explain me what's the meaning of it, "it's bulky,but I consider it carry-on"?Thanks in advance:)

    Peanuts and penis are almost homophones. "Yes, I have one right here." He must have earned a privileged place in the stewardess's heart with this response, as was manifest in her face.
    Obviously, Ventura was wandering from the subject.
    "It is bulky (large, occupies big space), but I consider it carry-on".
    Although it is big, it is not bigger than the maximum size that you are allowed take on board with you in a plane.

    YouTube - Ace Ventura
    - "Mr. Ventura, there is nothing wrong with enjoying the fruits of nature. You should try it some time."
    - "Alrighty then!"

    Brutal!
