"Nothing of any relevance"

The above is a quote from my 15-year-old niece, when I asked her what she was studying in school. It truly was a lame question, typical of inane questions by addled elderly relatives who want to express an interest in a young person but don't know what to say.

That being said, it is amazing how well her answer fits almost every question one is likely to encounter. I often find it springing into my mind.

"What did the committee decide?"
"Nothing of any relevance."
"Anything on the news?"
"Nothing of any relevance."
"What has Congress done lately?" You get the picture.
