My fiance, Jonah, has a little joke he likes to tell, it goes like this:
How do you know if someone listens to NPR?
They tell you!
It’s funny because it’s true. Annoying NPR listeners, like myself, are constantly quoting things we heard on NPR earlier that day. I’m reminded of the character from American Pie, the one that always starts a discussion with “one time, at band camp…”, except in my case it’s “today, on NPR…”. As the proud NPR listener that I am, I’m not ashamed to admit that this little bit on no-churn Nutella ice cream was inspired by an NPR piece.
