Real-life conversation I had recently...

Person:   What is the deal with this....."shibboleth"....issue?  I'm not even sure how to pronounce this.

Me:  It is extremely ironic that you just said that.

Person:  What?  What does it mean?

Me:   I think that you'd get a better explanation if you looked it up for yourself.

Person:  Whatever...   It probably doesn't matter how we pronounce it anyways.

Me:  For some people, it was a matter of life-or-death.

Person:  Huh?

Me:  Trust me:  look it up.
