About 2 months ago or so, the twins came up with a full bellied, knee slapping, tear inducing, rolling around on floor laughing JOKE. However, since they came up with it all on their own, no one else, not a single soul, knows what it is or what it really means. All we know is that the twins seem to think it is perhaps the most hilarious thing they have ever known.

They will sit in their room murmuring this to each other until they are both caught up in bouts of laughter. They will run through house chanting it back and forth, exploding into contagious giggling fits. They will echo it between themselves time and time again, with secret smiles and knowing eyebrows.

But they will never explain it to us, and I have a feeling that we may never truly know what it is, what it means, where it came from, and perhaps that's the beauty of this joke. Perhaps dope-ah-tee isn't merely ONE thing anyways, perhaps it's a bit more abstract and obscure. Whatever the case may be, for now, we will continue to delight in it.....

So what on earth are they pointing at when they say it?
