Funny (and probably apocryphal) story about the great mathematician Paul Erdős:
On one occasion, Erdős met a mathematician and asked him where he was from. "Vancouver," the mathematician replied. "Oh, then you must know my good friend Elliot Mendelson," Erdős said. The reply was, "I am your good friend Elliot Mendelson."
