He's trying to tell me that the Leaning Tower of Pisa isn't leaning anymore, thanks to all the people who've had their photos taken pretending to hold it up. I tell him that's poppycock. He tells me to wash my mouth out with soap.

"I thought the holding up the tower thing was cute the first time I saw someone do it in person in the early '90s," I say, "but as soon as I realized it was a common thing to do I thought it was stupid."

(Unless, of course, everyone who does it thinks he/she is being original.)
