This sums up both of us perfectly, really

My brother L. and I went out into town yesterday to run some errands.

Me: Hey, did you know "Magic Bus" is being used in an ad for minivans?

L: No, so what?

Me: Well, doesn't that go against everything the song represents?

L: [quoting from this Onion article] "Coke and Pepsi are now in a bidding war for the rights to Johnny Thunders' 'Chinese Rocks'."

[pause]

L: You know what Chinese rocks are, right?

Me: [sigh] Yes, L., I know what Chinese rocks are. I'm a history nerd, remember? Haven't you ever heard of the Opium Wars?

[pause]

L: Oh, why did they have to send those young opiums to the front lines? They died for nothing!
