“So Did the Fat Lady”

Another classic in the vein of Rubber Balls and Liqour and Pea Soup:

Person one: Say “so did the fat lady” after everything I say
Person two: So did the fat lady
Person one: I went to the zoo
Person two: So did the fat lady
Person one: I bought a balloon
Person two: So did the fat lady
Person one: I ate a whole lot of food.
Person two: So did the fat lady
Person one: The balloon popped
Person two: So did the fat lady

    I head the "so did the fat lady" joke, almost word-for-word except I vaguely recall it being a circus or fair instead of a zoo. The only other notable difference is that we said "so did the BIG fat lady". The cadence of it (da-da-da dah dah da-da) had a droning, mildly hypnotizing effect that made the punchline more surprising.
