It's so when you have to "interview" people you can ridge board them instead of water board them.  :)

The ridge board is a critical part of the building structure.  It holds together the front and back wall frames, providing stability and strength.  It carries the load of the roof and anything that goes on the roof (like a foot or five of wet snow -- they always plan for extremes).

The RIDGE BOARD is: the horizontal timber or member at the top of a roof, to which the upper ends of the rafters are fastened.
