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.
(blank dumbfounded looks)
Cousin: That’s, um, where the aliens from V come from.
Aunt, completely understanding : Ohhhh!
