I'm going to take a wild stab at this. Money? Consider

I thought it was gonna be about when I was a kid and we played Cowboys and Indians, was I a Cowboy or an Indian? But I don't remember ever playing Cowboys and Indians, so that would have been a tough one.

I never played cowboys and indians either. My brothers and I hurled dirt-clod mortars at each other instead.

Impossible to spell... totally unpronounceable... and two Xs? Seriously?

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
