    Comedy is about timing, right? And a "callback", in terms of comedy, is a joke that refers to one previously told by a comedian during their set. In this case, Lunch Break does a callback to a joke they told one year prior. Is this the Guinness Worlds Record for "Longest Comedic Callback"?? Seems possible… 😉
