And Prince

Aunt, look­ing up at the stars: What is that?
Nephew: Is this the south­ern or north­ern hemi­sphere?
Aunt (gig­gling): I have no idea.
Cousin, with­out look­ing up : That’s Ori­on. You can see Meis­sa, the star at the top, that’s its head. The re­al­ly bright one is Rigel, that’s sup­posed to be the knee. If you fol­low the con­stel­la­tion down­wards you’ll see Sir­ius.

Cousin: That’s, um, where the aliens from V come from.
Aunt, com­plete­ly un­der­stand­ing : Ohh­hh!
