Ruining Jokes

Weeks ago, I had an interaction with a friend that went like this:

Hey, what does Snoop Dogg use an umbrella for?

Friend

Fo’ drizzle?

Me

Yep

Friend

Just as I was saying the words “Fo’ drizzle?”, I realised that I could be right (possibly because I’ve heard the joke before, but I didn’t know for sure). Should I have stopped myself? Should I have pretended that I didn’t know the joke for the sake of my friend’s benefit? Hmm.
