Triplets discover their true purpose in life: a corny yearbook quote.

As a graduating triplet, you know you've got an opportunity to tell a story in your senior quote. And even though twins, and to a greater extent triplets, are genetic freaks who should scare everyone who encounters them, the Durham triplets are merely endearing.

They used their senior quote to tell a knock knock joke.

Oh, boy (+girls).

The Durhams are a decidedly benign trinity. They had every opportunity to write a coded political message. Something like, say, "Fight" "The" "Power." But not everyone's a yearbook activist. They just went with:

"Knock knock."

"Who's there?"

"Not the triplets. We graduated."

Really makes you wonder how you'd use this opportunity yourself, if you also had two genetic replicas to help you tell a parting story to the rest of the senior class. Maybe "I" "Like" "Turtles"—if your triumvirate was especially hilarious. On second thought, maybe the Durhams' joke was fine.

This is not a set of quadruplets, but they had the same opportunity as the Durhams.

And this guy didn't have two siblings to help complete his message, but can you imagine if he did? Probably would have written some borderline erotica.

So just appreciate the Durham triplets for their simple use of the quote section. They didn't aim for the moon and land in the stars, they just sorta aimed somewhere in the general vicinity of a tree and hit the branch. These kids are going somewhere average.
