“If Nostradamus and Galileo met up for a beer in a bar on the breakwater in 1579 how might Nostradamus have described the encounter?”
Knowing the correct answer was- Nostradamus died in 1566- could not stop the class clown from answering-
“We’re just kickin’ it in the groyne.”

Groyne n. “strong, low sea wall,” 1580s, perhaps from obsolete groin “pig’s snout” (c.1300; the wall so called because it was thought to look like one), from Old French groin , from Latin grunnire “grunt.” Online Etymology Dictionary, © 2010 Douglas Harper
