A different slice of apple pie

I'm talking with my buddy on the phone. He's telling me about his five-month-old son.

"Want to see my kid fall down laughing?" he poses. "Just look him straight in the face and say 'apple pie'."

"Apple pie?" I say.

"Apple pie," he says. "Kid laughs his head off."

"Apple pie," I say again, then lower my voice with the conspiratorial inclusion of John Gotti. "Wait'll he gets a load of 'perpendicular'."

My kids are now 14 and 19...but they still laugh when I say "poop." I hope that never changes.

I'm not sure if one particular word reduces my kids to laughter. Maybe "corn". If you say it enough it just sounds ridiculous.
