Is this really a geography lesson?

My husband and I stopped at a diner tonight on our way home from Lancaster, PA. At a table nearby, there was a mother with two children, a girl who was probably 8 or 9, and a boy who was probably about 4. An older woman (maybe grandma??) was with them. While they were waiting for their food to be delivered, the two women and the daughter were having a discussion about canals and where they were located. The little girl would say, "Panama Canal", and one of the women would ask, "Where is it located?" Then she came up with Erie Canal, C&O Canal, the Suez Canal and other canals, as well as their locations.

This went on for a few minutes, and then the little boy very loudly asked, "So where is the BIRTH CANAL?" (The stifled giggles around the diner were pretty funny too!!!)
