Lesson #37: A Left Turn at Albuquerque

I was talking with a college friend of mine very early this morning and the subject of Albuquerque came up and he went, “I knew I should have turned left at Albuquerque.” This was met with a blank stare. Or would have were we on the same continent.

Duly horrified by my lack of cartoon knowledge, I was then informed that it’s a running Bugs Bunny gag.

Of course it is.

So that’s it. That’s what I learned today. I learned that I have spent nearly 30 years completely unaware of the expression “I knew I should have turned left at Albuquerque” and variations thereof. Do you know how many times I could have used that?


Also, there is apparently a band called ‘Left Turn at Albuquerque’ which makes sense given that there are also bands called ‘Save Ferris’ and ‘Fall Out Boy’.

    Seriously? Why did you even admit this to people? I’m so mad that we’re friends.
