Scenario: I’m talking with my boss in her office. Her boss enters:
Him: Can you finish this list by tomorrow?
Her: Whatever you need, boss.
Him: Say, that’s a first!
Me: That’s what you like to hear, huh?
Him: (to her) Great, then I’ll just… (turns to me with a perplexed look) Did you just call me Happy Bear?
Me: Happy Bear? No, I said… (long pause) Actually, yes. I absolutely just called you Happy Bear.
Her: At least, that’s what we’re calling you from now on.
