Huh?

The Nobel Prize for literature has been awarded to Jean-Marie Gustave Le Clézio, whom, allow me to say with complete honesty, I had never heard of until 4 minutes ago.

Does this make me a philistine? Should I care about JMGLC?

I thought Le Clezio sounded like a good name for a restaurant.

I'd say most of us are philistines, based on your theory.

I hate to invoke my superior memory, but while in CEGEP I recommended Le Clezio's Material Ecstasy to you and you tried and gave up halfway through.

History has proven me right.

Baloney. This one recollection I refuse to believe.
