Because I'm continuously tempted to say that "everyone" has heard this epigram before.

I have heard some variation of or I am familiar with the phrase/sentiment "men seldom make passes at girls who wear glasses"

I first heard it on Will and Grace.

I have, but it was very recently that I heard it for the first time (I'm 28).

I really like Dorothy Parker, and I bet that's her most well-known line.

I wonder if that's an indication of age, like if you're over a certain age, you're familiar with it and if you're under that age, you're probably not?

I'm very familiar with it, being a girl in glasses. Boys don't make passes at girls wearing glasses.

I have never heard of that. I don't know Dorothy Parker either though.
