We did bring the memorial back with us from the Crusades

overheard at the Lincoln Memorial:
Obese Tourist 1: "What's that writing below the state names?" [pointing at the roman numerals]
Obese Tourist 2: "I think it's Arabic"
Obese Tourist 1: "Ohhhhh, of course" [dead serious]

This story would have been funny without the demographic adjective. Or is this your subtle way of propogating the belief that only fat people say stupid things?
