stand-alone replies

Occasionally, I reply to an e-mail and then look at the reply sans context and think, hmm, here is a string of words that you don't see every day. I remember a few months ago thinking that when I sent a reply to someone that said:
Yes, I know her.  She's from Idaho, and, like me, she knows her way around a sheep.
I just thought the same thing again, when I sent someone this reply:
Was that the guy who was breakdancing at your wedding?  The one who was 

knocked cold when he did that spin on the floor and hit his head. And was
that the guy who started buying Camels even though he didn't smoke so
he could get the Camel Cash and then ended up becoming a chain smoker?
