Out and About

Ah, Eliot, What Have ye Done?
Sign in front of a local strip joint: "Come On In! WE Won't Tell!"

Teach Your Children Well:
Stop me if you're heard this one before: in front of me in the checkout line was a... marginal... woman and her young son. He was whiny, demanding a squirt gun, and twice flung it into the shopping cart that she was unloading. "You're not getting nuthin'!" she repeated with increasing volume. The third time he put the toy into the cart, with a guttural sound, she threw the squirt gun on the checkout belt, pulling out several additional dollars to pay for it.

Anyone want to guess what she taught her son? Yeah, 'persistence pays off.' But, someday he's going to be really confused when Mom has truly had enough and smacks him one. And, of course, it will be his own fault. He shoulda learned better...
