This joke was told at a colloquium here by Dr. Steve Pinker of MIT. He said it was an old Boston joke, so maybe you've 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, "That's the first time I've heard that said in the pluperfect subjunctive."
