Overheard in Chattanooga

I read this site regularly and have to laugh at some of the incredibly narrow-minded, dimwitted and down-right uneducated things people say.

I finally have something to contribute, but since I don't live in New York City, I'll post it here. This actually happened last night.

Conversation between Jim and an unnamed person who he happened to run in to:

Lady: Did we get a new pope today?
Jim: Yes, we did.
Lady: What's his name?
Jim: He's Cardinal Ratzinger from Germany. He took the name Pope Benedict XVI.
Lady: He's from Germany?!?!?
Jim: Yes.
Lady: Oh, I thought he was Catholic.
