So I was half-watching some show during dinner tonight, seemingly about the stupidest things people have said on game shows. Things like “No, I didn’t get any snow on my wedding day, but I got eight inches on my honeymoon. Oh, let me rephrase that.” Things like “Name an Arab country”. “Israel”. “Name the month during which a pregnancy starts to show”. “September”. You know.
Reminded me of a guy I once knew, whose name I’ll withhold to protect the innocent (in the Québécois sense of the word). We were talking about last names, and a friend of mine said, “Prescott is a great last name”. To which he replied, “Prescott, yeah, nice. Whose last name is that?”.
- It’s George’s.
- George who?
