3. "Why? Is the Tooth Fairy busy?"
I use that one on a co-worker. She's Jewish but not particularly religious AFAIK. Anyway, she laughed.

Other than that, I don't usually say anything. Like a sneeze, most people seem to say it reflexively. Like a sort of mental sneeze, I guess.

Now if I'm visiting the kin back in Confederistan, I keep my mouth shut and don't launch into a lecture about how I don't believe in any gods. To recycle an old joke, most of my relatives probably wouldn't burn me at the stake. But if somebody else did, they might stop and roast a marshmallow.
