Two colleagues are chatting as I approach the coffee machine at work. Man 1 is relaying the itinerary of his approaching holiday to the USA.
MAN 1: “…and then we’re off to see some of her relatives in redneck country – South Carolina, where there will no doubt be many firearms on display…”
MAN 2: [Laughs, then suddenly stops] “You’re not joking, are you?”
MAN 1: “No: there’s a bunch of assault rifles they want me to see, apparently”
MAN 2: “Are you taking the kids?”
MAN 1: “Not to that, no.”
