3rat,

I was shopping with my daughter over the weekend and she was making fun of me looking for cheap(er) gasoline and counting change. "My time is worth more than that " she said. Joyously mine isn't.

Phew, I'm glad you quit while you're so far behind. It's clear that you're dealing with a pro waaaay out of our leagues.

It's not whether Google would return an image from the keywords "rhino" and "thong"-- it's what depraved intellect would link those two words in the first place!

Who would ever get a chance to read the National Enquirer if no-one used checks or counted out pennies? :

Re: Got any spare change, mister?

What scares me is that the national enquirer sells subscriptions.

I can only imagine the sort of person who needs that valuable information each and every week...
