I used to have a can of Spam on my desk until somebody STOLE it. Why someone would steal a can of Spam is a little hard for me to understand.<P>------------------

So I lived on caviar-smothered potato chips for a few weeks. Sweet!

Those are OK, but surely you're not suggesting that macadamia nut cookies can compare to a good stapler!

Yikes. Cavariar nacho cheese ruffles washed down with Orbitz.<P>PS: I never could bring myself to try Orbitz. It looked too much like frog eggs in pond water to me. *shudder* The product appears to be discontinued-- imagine that?<P>Hey, there's a new storyline for you. Woofer and Festus return to Earth to find Orbitz-- but <b>it doesn't exist anymore</a>. Hijinks ensue.
