One of my favorites is B16.0.

One of my friend's co-workers was saying "He was in that cult... ya know, the one where they have lots of wives..."

"Mormons?"

"No, no, I'll know it when you say it..."

Later, after consultation with a different co-worker, "Hitler Youth? That can't be what she's talking about." "I bet it is."

A few minutes later, to the first coworker, "Nazis?"

"Yeah, that's the one, where they have lots of wives..."

I swear, some people are a waste of good oxygen.
