A Typical Conversation Around These Parts

Conversation at the Baltimore County Pioneer Walk "park":

Me: Do you think they let you put just anyone's name on these markers? (The floor of the "park" has a lot of commemorative stones with names of organizations or individuals.)
Rob: What do you mean?
Me:  Like if you asked them to, would they say this park was partially made possible through the generosity of The Hamburglar?
Rob: I don't think so.
Me: But I paid for the stone, they should let me say whatever I want.
Rob: Maybe they would.
Me: It should also say "Robble Robble." Underneath the name.
Rob: That's just silly.
Me: What about if I asked them to put it in the name of Samuel L. Jackson?
Rob: They definitely wouldn't allow that.
Me: But it's not a cause that Samuel L. Jackson is opposed to! And he would never even have to know!
Rob: Why would you do that? Oh, wait, it's you.
Me: The Samuel L. Jackson stone would also have "Robble Robble" engraved on it.

New goal: to make this happen.

  3. I don't see why not either. I've seen some brick markers in Richmond at VCU and various city parks that have engraved things like "________ loves _________." And that's kind of silly.

    Tell Rob that there is the high possibility that there is more than one Samuel L. Jackson out there. The only way one could be referring to the actor is if the second inscription quoted one of his movies.
