In the spirit of The Big Bang TV show titles I am looking for a word to use in a particular situation. First, there's a joke that sets up the scenario.
2 guys camping. They are barefoot by the fire. One says "I hear a bear" and starts lacing up his sneakers. The friend says, "you can't outrun a bear." The first guy says, "I know, I just need to outrun you." /end of joke.
I am home with my wife and daughter, and my teenager is getting annoying, as teens will from time to time. I wait, until my wife starts screaming. Daughter goes to her room, and I chuckled. My wife asks what's so funny. I remind her of the joke, and tell her I implemented the "Bear-Sneaker ______" in other words, no need to outwait my daughter, I just needed to last longer than my wife.
I am looking for the best word to fill in that blank. I understand the full expression won't come into usage.
