This joke was told at a colloquium here by Dr. Steve Pinker of MIT. He
said it was an old Boston joke, so maybe youve heard it before.

This woman lands at Logan Airport in Boston. She gets her luggage and
jumps into a cab. She tells the cabbie, Take me to a place where I can
get scrod.

The cabbie turns around and says, Thats the first time Ive heard that
said in the pluperfect subjunctive.
