True conversation from work yesterday:

Her: Humph. That's funny.
Myself: What's funny?
Her: This guy's name is Napoleon.
Myself: Ah.
Her: Wadn't that one of them English kings?
Myself: French, Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte. You haven't heard of him? He was all over the map.
Her: *nattering, not listening*

email from co-worker. Don't even try. It's a lost cause.

You'd be lucky if she recognized Napoleon Dynamite, let alone Napoleon Bonaparte. Don't try too hard, you'll end up singing along with Napoleon XIV - They're coming to take me away, ha ha!!

I think the line from "Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure" is that Napoleon is "a short dead dude".
