Shorthand

In a bar in a remote Hawaiian village, a newcomer hears people yelling out random numbers (“33! 52!”) and then everyone laughing. He asks a man sitting nearby what’s going on and the man says that the same jokes have been told so many times that people just yell out their numbers instead of telling them over and over. The newcomer yells out “42!” and everybody laughs. A big guy sitting nearby nudges him and says “Good Hitchhiker reference.”
