The Answer is "Percy"

Earlier tonight I was watching The Big Bang Theory and Sheldon was telling Penny that he knows everything in the universe. Her reply was, "who is Radiohead."

This was, of course, met with a blank stare. I know this feeling, and something very similar happened to me close to ten years ago now.

At the time I was living with, and dating, Gwen in Arlington. For those of you who know her also know her son, Mason, was living in that apartment as well. He was probably two or three and we were all in the car. As usual, I was answering the random questions he would ask. He asked how I knew something and the conversation went something like this:

ME: Because I know everything!
MASON: Oh yeah, well who is Thomas the Tank Engine's best friend?
ME: Uh...

Gwen could not stop laughing and Mason joined in as well.

Fucking kids.
