Ask her how you can make a dog meow.

Always a crowd-pleaser.
Had a meeting with the head of personnel- excuse me, 'Human Resources'- a while back, and at one point she mentioned that when she was in college she'd helped run a kids soccer team 'because community service was required'. I caught myself just before asking "What were the charges?"

Or, Scott, ask her, "how you turn a cat into a dog?"
Pour gasoline on it, strike a match, and "Woof!"
