Know your audience

Looking at a dumpling menu which includes one filled with "pork and scallions".

ESL friend: What are scallions?
me: They're related to green onions...
...Do you have onion grass, chives, growing in your yard?...
...In the VeggieTales Daniel & the Lions Den?  They're the guys who go "Dunn-dunn-dunn..." (moving shoulders back and forth, as in "Oh No, what we gonna do").
ESL friend: Thank you!  Now I know what you're talking about!
