Oh, but let's not, as they say, Go There.
Instead, I think I'll just shake loose a few errant Thought Nerfuls and set them free.
~*~Back in 1979 when Skylab's doom was forecast and we all were warned of its imminent plunge to earth, I was a junior at Bowling Green State University. This, as I am wont to constantly remind my children, was well before the Interwebs and Cellular Phones, but not before alcohol, so pretty much the entire university prepared for this event by hosting dorm parties.

The Beneful people are buying up avocadoes, thus needlessly creating a demand which, in turn, is raising prices for me. Hey, Beneful. Knock it the hell off! Who the hell do you think you are? Dogs eat meat and, in the case of the Golden Retriever who lived here for six weeks, the occasional door. Lay off my avos.
