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.
Me: Trust me: look it up.
