Grammar humor

From Steven Pinker's The Language Instinct, p.133:

"In Boston there is an old joke about a woman who landed at Logan Airport and asked the taxi driver, 'Can you take me someplace where I can get scrod?' He replied, 'Gee, that's the first time I've heard it in the pluperfect subjunctive.'"
