If you're a Hollywood celebrity, not being aware of Dairy Queen apparently gets you free ice cream for life.
Actress Emily Blunt committed sacrilege when she admitted she didn't know what the famous "DQ" initials stand for during an informal U.S. Citizenship Test on the Jimmy Kimmel Show this week.
She should be given a little leeway given she's from England (which doesn't have Dairy Queen), albeit recently became a naturalized American citizen.
Nonetheless, her ignorance of the popular chain, which has its headquarters in Edina, came to the attention of DQ higher-ups – who have offered her free food, desserts and Dilly Bars for life.
"We’d like to invite Ms. Blunt to lunch or dinner at Dairy Queen as many times as she’d like to come to celebrate her American citizenship," VP of marketing Barry Westrum said, according to Bloomberg. "We hope she’ll take us up on our offer so she’ll always remember what DQ stands for."
You can watch Blunt's blunder above. She also didn't know what MLB stands for, or what the giant refillable sodas at 7-Elevens are called.
Editor's note to Dairy Queen: The team at BringMeTheNews, erm, also don't know what DQ stands for ... we await your call.
