So Mary-Catherine is at the grocery, and she sees the newly-widowed Mary-Margaret over in produce, and wants to cheer her up. She sidles up to Mary-Margaret, gives her arm a bit of a squeeze, and says, "Aye, good morning, dear. I've been thinking of you. How are you getting along now without Seamus, love?".
Mary-Margaret looks over and gives Mary-Catherine a tired, knowing smile, and says, "Oh, I thank you deeply, dear heart. I was really just thinking of my dearly departed old Seamus and his lovely balls while I was selecting a few potatoes, truth be told!".
"Well, may the saints preserve us, Mary-Margaret!", she cries. Then Mary-Catherine lowers her voice and whispers impishly, 'Tell me, lass, is it their size that reminds you of your dear Seamus?".
"No dear, it's the dirt on them. Seamus had become a chore, truly!".
edit: works equally well for Frieda, Eva, and Eli Yoder
