While watching Parks and Recreation with the wife person, I mentioned something about Rashida Jones being Quincy Jones' daughter. To my surprise, the wife person had no idea. This segued into a discussion about Jones as an actress (we agreed she's likable, has great timing, and plays the "normal woman" to the manic surrounding characters pretty well), which then subsegued into "she always seems to be paired with White guys" which then subsubsequed into "Hmm. I wonder who'd be the Whitest of her White love interests?" which then, well, you get the point.
