interchangable. This confusion stems from the hasty establishment of the

Also consider why you have to buy something to get something else that is

I use this philosophy to justify opening cereal boxes in the store and eating
the "FOUR OUNCES EXTRA FREE"...boy, the store manager was mad, but I said

How about "DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME"? What the hell does that mean? Can you

of daylight saved up in by back pocket here".

A 'seedless' orange can have as many as 6 seeds in it. If you choke to death
on a seed in a 'seedless' orange...does that mean you're not really dead?
Aren't people afraid that someone other than a fool will try to get through
their `FOOLPROOF ALARM SYSTEM'?
