'How do you tell when the person addressing a group of librarians is not a librarian? Easy. He or she will, as surely as day follows night, make a reference to the Library of Alexandria.'

Or in a different situation how to tell when the audience doesn't know anything about libraries you use the example of Alexandria, because it might be the only one they've heard of.
