I'd never heard that one before

Today, when I was standing in line at Starbucks with the boys in the double stroller:

Mother, to her little boy: Look, twins! There's two of them!

Little boy: Only two of them?

Keen: [Laughs hysterically.]

I've never really minded getting comments about the twins. Are they natural? Are they identical? Who was born first? Ooooh, double trouble! And so on and so forth. I can make my answer as long and friendly or as short and curt as I want to depending on my mood. Mostly, people are just being nice, which I'll take any day over people who are bitter or mean, and I've had a couple of those encounters, too.
