“How did you find the weather on your vacation?”/“I just went outside and there it was.”

“How did you find the weather on your holiday?” really means, “How was the weather?” The joke answer is, “I just went outside and there it was.”
   
“How did you find your steak?”/“I moved a pea and some parsley, and there it was!” is a related joke.
