How many times have you encountered the fellow music lover at your local music store, only to hear the most ridiculous statements erupt from their mouth? Here is a chapter from one of my recent ventures to the old record store.

Dude #1: Hey look, Andy Griffith.
Dude #2: (Chuckles at appearance of album) That's funny. Y'know he's from North Carolina.
Dude #1: Yah, I heard he, like, founded Mt. Airy after he made the show.
Girl #1: Yah? I heard he was a deck*! *ə used to emphasize pronunciation.
