You'd think the most common question might be to do with serial killers. Or growing marijuana in the back yard. Or the legality of gambling at home with friends (yes, Justin, this refers to your question... see Texas Penal Code Section 47.02 for guidance).
Those might, of course, be questions regular ADAs get, but I'm from England so I get different ones.
First is usually, "Dude, what's up with soccer? It's soooo boring," which produces a rant from me about baseball and a threat to make the questioner sit down and watch a five-day cricket match.
Next is, "What's the difference between England and Britain?"
It used to be, when I told people I had boy-girl twins, "Cool, are they identical?"
I'm dead serious, people used to ask that all the time, and I'm talking intelligent people with advanced degrees. I got fed-up being nice about it after a while, and responded with, "No, one of them has a penis," which (a) shut them up and (b) really seemed to highlight the idiocy of the question for anyone listening to the conversation.
Anyway, back to the England v. Britain thing. All you ever wanted to know about it, actually, thanks to the suggestion of a reader. Here's the simple version:
