Addams Family Musical takes jab at homeschoolers

I have been out of town with no internet access in my hotel. I went to New York City. While there I went to see the Addams Family Musical on Broadway. I liked the show, but there were a few things I didn't like. There was one part when Wednesday's new boyfriend started dropping poetic references, and Wednesday exclaimed “I don't get your references, I was homeschooled”. The crowd laughed, but I couldn't help thinking that home schoolers would be more likely to get obscure poetic references like Ulysses by Lord Tennyson than your typical public school educated student, not that either is all that likely to get the reference.
