    You have to be old enough to appreciate this.
    If you don't understand it,
    it's because you are too young.
    I hate to admit it, but I got it.

    I'm getting on a bit, but it means nothing to me. Is there a reference to some aspect of US culture that may not be known in Europe?

    Yeah, I'm old enough, so I "got it" Paulie! . . . R.I.P. Jackie!

    Stuart, it's a reference to an old, great, television show in the USA called The Honemooners, starring Jackie Gleason and Art Carney. Jackie played Ralph Kramden who was always threatening to send his wife, Alice, to the moon when she "acted up."

    Sorry to spoil the mystery...

    The Honeymooners

    Edited: I think it's in the public domain now, so I tried to find a video of a scene with the above, but couldn't locate one.
