The Pervasive Influence of the English Bible on the American Mind

*$I asked for a refill of coffee at Starbucks.

I get the obligatory question, "Would you like room for cream?"

Before I give the obligatory answer, "No," the barista amends his question, "Or perhaps I should say, 'Would you like room for the cream?'" Then he explained, "Sometimes the King James Version confuses people."

I agreed and thanked him for my refill.

Sure he didn't say "Wouldst thou"?
