Friend: We should go on a day trip to somewhere near DC this weekend.
S: We could go to Gettysburg. My professor went there a few weeks ago and he loved it. It's real close too. Right there in Virgina or something.
Me: Gettysburg is not in Virgina. I can't believe that you don't know where one of the most important battles in American history took place.
S: Well, I'm sorry but I don't know... the Gettysburg address.
Everyone within earshot: Oh no you didn't!
