Why has no one heard of this incredibly witty man?

I took my Dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes  (he is 71). We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors - green, red, orange, and blue.
My Dad kept staring at her. The teenager kept looking and would find my Dad staring every time. When the teenager had had enough, she sarcastically asked: What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?
Knowing my Dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response; I knew he would have a good one! In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid:
"Got stoned once and screwed a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my daughter."
