One of my friends downloaded Ken Burns Civil War (a PBS mini-series) and it got passed around the crew and most of us have now seen it. Shelby Foote (the above author) is interviewed throughout and is a very interesting cat.

Now, almost everyone does a Shelby Foote imitation and people will randomly start telling stories or talking Shelby Foote style. It is fucking awesome.

The guy has brought hours of comedy to my life.
