In paying for food with a ten dollar bill, I wondered aloud who was on the ten dollar bill. It's sad that I don't know. It turns out it's Alexander Hamilton.
Me: "Why is Alexander Hamilton on the ten dollar bill?"
Husband: "I don't know... wasn't he the President?"
Husband: "Are you sure? I thought that Benjamin Franklin was the only non-President who's on money."
Me: "I'm pretty sure Alexander Hamilton was never President."
Husband: "Well, he did something. Maybe signed the Declaration of Independence."
Me: "All I know is that he was shot by Aaron Burr in that duel. And I only know that because of that commercial."
Pretty sad that the knowledge two adults have of American history comes almost exclusively from a milk commercial.
Tangentially related funny story:
Back in high school, my brother wrote a paper on Alexander Hamilton, which I happened to notice on the computer a few days after he handed it in. I'm not sure what compelled me to read this paper, but it was pretty unintentionally funny. The most hilarious thing I remember about the paper was that halfway through, he suddenly started calling him "Mark Hamilton" for no apparent reason. I guess he got him confused with Mark Hammil or something?
