He obviously enjoyed ludicrous 'cross' suggestions.
Thank you, 'Boo. You've brightened my day!

It wasn't even someone I knew but someone who had just given a talk, and that's what he reminded me of. It came off as quite a performance, in the way it veered from hilarity to seriousness and back, so I had no problem making the comment. But in retrospect, what a thing to spring on someone! He was too tactful to react much and changed the subject quickly from there.
