I am Groot.

It never fails to amaze (and amuse) me how easy it is to reduce my seven years old niece to rage-filled tears.

Take the line the thread title comes from, which consists of almost the entirety of the dialogue of the tree-like alien, Groot, from Guardians of the Galaxy. If you are not familiar with the movie (SHAME ON YOU), let me explain that the character doesn't say the line once, or a few times, but throughout the entire film. I am Groot. I am Groot. I am Groot? I am Groot. Every time time he opened his...well I guess it was his mouth, "I am Groot." Any time dialogue was required, it was "I am Groot.", and his partner understood him perfectly, in a Han and Chewy kind of way.

Anyway, we had just watched the movie, and I got it into my head that I would respond to any conversation with "I am Groot." few the next few hours, or until I got bored with it, whichever came first. Little did I know it would actually be "until my niece threw a fit", which happened only ten minutes in.

So much for my fun.

What I'm getting at is it takes no effort or intention.
