seems like the only possible explanation 

Overheard on the 6 train toward Bleeker:

Chick #1: Yeah, Lovely Bones is my favorite book. Totally. What's yours?

Chick #2: Oh, this book called On the Road. It's by this guy, Jack Kerouac.

Chick #1: Yeah? What's it about?

Chick #2: It's about this beat stuff. 'Cause the guy -- he was, ya know, beat.

Chick #1: Beat?

Chick #2: Yeah, like, him and Allen Ginsberg wrote stuff and hitchhiked and dropped out of Columbia.

Chick #1: Oh my god. Why would you ever drop out of Columbia? Must have sucked to be them.

Chick #2: Yeah, I dunno. I guess they were, like, broke.
