‘They’re like, “Sir, there’s something in your bag.”
‘I said, “Yes, I think it’s this box.”
‘They said, “What’s in the box?”
‘I said, “a large gold medal,” as one does.
‘So they opened it up and they said, “What’s it made out of?”
‘I said, “gold.”
‘And they’re like, “Uhhhh. Who gave this to you?”
‘”The King of Sweden”.
‘”Why did he give this to you?”‘
‘”Because I helped discover the expansion rate of the universe was accelerating.” At which point, they were beginning to lose their sense of humor.
‘I explained to them it was a Nobel Prize, and their main question was, “Why were you in Fargo?”‘
