You used up all the glue... on purpose!

Over the years I got to be quite a connoisseur of soap. My personal preference was for Lux, but I found Palmolive had a nice, piquant after-dinner flavor - heady, but with just a touch of mellow smoothness. Life Buoy, on the other hand...

In the heat of battle my father wove a tapestry of obscenities that as far as we know is still hanging in space over Lake Michigan.

Aunt Clara had for years labored under the delusion that I was not only perpetually 4 years old, but also a girl.

He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master.

Oh, life is like that. Sometimes, at the height of our revelries, when our joy is at its zenith, when all is most right with the world, the most unthinkable disasters decend upon us.

Meanwhile, I struggled for exactly the right BB gun hint. It had to be firm, but subtle.

Flick says he saw some grizzly bears near Pulaski's candy store!

They looked at me as if I had lobsters crawling out of my ears.

Schwartz created a slight breach of etiquette by skipping the triple dare and going right for the throat!
