Not Exactly

On seeing the Knoxville Opera's billboard for an upcoming version of Romeo and Juliette:

Boy Wonder:  Mom, what's Romeo and Juliet?

Me:  Well, it's a tragic love story about two young people.  They're in love, but their families hate each other, and the young people end up dying because their families can't get along.  Then their families are really torn up.  It's a famous play, by William Shakespeare.

Boy Wonder:  Oh, so exactly like Gnomeo and Juliet then.

Me:  . . .
