Analysis: What's a Henway?
Fridge Logic can rip apart a henway, as sometimes the joke requires a Contrived Coincidence of a response that can defy social patterns. Take for instance:
Alice:"I was playing card games with some African natives."
Bob: "Zulus?"
Alice: "No, I won!"
In this case, if you think about it a bit, you would think Bob's first response would instead be "Oh, really?" or "When were you in Africa?" And if Bob is learned in African tribes, there are over 100 of them - why choose "Zulu"? But for the joke to work, Bob has to say "Zulus".
