You are at the grocery store checking out and see a "GMs Miscellany" coloring book on the shelves next to rest of the BS rags.
I wish I would have taken a pic. But it had some sort of generic ogl 5e compatible logo and was filled with monsters,items, maps, random tables, and of course was on that coloring book paper we all know.
I was too old for coloring books (or so I thought, as I loved coloring with my kids) by the time of the big boom of the fad years of the 80s, but still never recall anything sitting next to Women's day, or vogue, or whatever at the grocery store.

My aunt - who drinks a LOT of wine - tells me how funny Community and Big Bang Theory is, and how adorable "that game they play with the funny looking dice" is.
Don Federico Fellove: Do you know what a zugzwang is? Fico Fellove: It's a chess move. Don Federico Fellove: It is a chess move that is no move at all. It is actually a position. A position in which each player will obtain a worse result if it were his time to move, than if it were not. Do you follow? A double bind. [pointing to himself and Fico] A reciprocal situation. All you have to do is act accordingly. Which means... ...to not act at all.
It's pretty buried in the movie. The camera is is capturing the whole living area of the house and the main action is really the mom trying to get dinner organized, while the kids are playing their game almost in the background as part of the chaotic ambiance of the scene. None of their lines are focused on, so if you're not super focused on their dialogue then it whizzes right by unnoticed.
