    (1) Sometimes it means "You are pushing your luck" or "you are going too far."

    Tom (laughs and says to Joe): You are a really short dude.

    Joe (laughs): Yeah, I am.

    Tom (still laughing): And you have a horrible haircut.

    Joe (still smiling): Yeah, I do.

    Tom (still laughing): And your ears are too big.

    Joe (not smiling very much): Your ears are pretty big, too, dude.

    Tom (still laughing): And, let's face it, you're ugly! No girl would ever want to marry you!

    Joe (not smiling): Hey, dude. You're going too far! Shut up, or I'm going to beat you up.

    Tom (not smiling): OK! OK! I was just kidding. I apologize. I should have stopped

    talking after I made that comment about your haircut.
