I don't know if you've noticed, but when college-aged males go on car rides, they will compete for the passenger's seat by shouting out "shotgun!" The one who is judged to have said it first wins the spot.

Almost ten years after graduation, one of my friends still does this. We are embarrassed for him, slightly.

Worse, when Steve announced he was getting married, this same chum(p) of ours, in all seriousness, shouted out "best man!" He clearly felt cheated and began to sulk when, after a slight pause, Steve announced he had chosen Simon to play that role.
