spin-off: What are your witty comebacks to strangers who make "family size" comments?

After reading the other post I want some new and refreshing, yet still modest comebacks for those horrible people in public who don't understand the joys of more than one child and seem to feel compelled to make comments about it.

Here are the one's I use so far:
comment: "You do know what cause that don't you?"
Comeback: "No, but I am dying to know so that I can have a few more!"

Comment: "you sure do have your hands full"
comeback: "nope, my hands are free, there is room for more!"

comment: "oh, looks you were trying to get a girl"
comeback: "nope, I got exactly what I prayed for, and I hope the next one is a boy too!" (then they usually same "The NEXT one, are you crazy!?!"

"Did you learn your lesson?" (After 1 kid!)
"Sure did! S*x is fun and you get babies too!"

I had a professor in college who had five by the time I graduated but their goal was nine. He loved it when people would say "You know what causes that, right?" because he'd look at them with a perfectly straight face and say "No, can you please explain it to me?" He also liked comments about "it" being in the water. He'd always respond that "Nope, it's in the tequila" (neither he nor his wife drank a drop so if you knew him well, it was funny to hear him say that).

This one isn't exactly modest, but when I was pregnant with DD and some lady asked if the pregnancy was planned I responsed, "Yes, we had s*x with the full intent to fertilize an egg." It definitely shut her up!

Well I'm not known for being subtle at all. So here are my answers to those questions:

Quote:
comment: "You do know what cause that don't you?"
Comeback: Oh Yes! A lot of sex. Would you like to see the poloroids?

Quote:
Comment: "you sure do have your hands full"
comeback: uh, huh. So anyway...

Quote:
comment: "oh, looks you were trying to get a girl"
comeback: I was actually just trying to get a back rub - you know men. Anyway...

Someone says, " Gosh, your hands are full" and I say, " Yes, Better full than empty!".........

I have a friend who, when asked by rude people if baby #3 was an accident, would say, "What an important question that is. Enough about my sex life. Let's talk about your sex life." Hee hee.

I don't have a large family yet.... but I'm a triplet.. so we ALWAYS got comments (and still do, once people find out).. I always just tell them that Clomid's my daddy (which, for ME, is kinda true... Mom ovulated again but was already 4 weeks pregnant with the boys.. ) or that we busted free of the freak show and to please not report us as missing.
