Mom: ...and after all, 100 years ago a marriage between an Irish Catholic and a Jew was considered a racially mixed marriage. I think there was a play about that...
Me: There was, Abie's Irish Rose, which was popular enough to spawn a sequel. The couple had twins.
Mom: HOW DO YOU KNOW THIS? THIS IS NOT NORMAL TO KNOW!

Honestly, Mommy, you're the one who brought it up!

And the answer is I know about it the same way I knew about Chekov's Gun when a cabbie brought it up a few weeks prior: TvTropes. So now you know! (I tried telling her that, but I'm not sure she's ever been on TvTropes herself, so....)
