Edison Had Nothing on Me



My (Ol' Grubworst Snake's) worst fear: Raggedy still can't read her email, because of the headache thingy. We will plod on, though, knowing that soon she will be amongst us. ("Soon" is a code word meaning "whenever.")

So I went to the Patent Office to register some of my inventions. I went to the main desk to sign in and the lady at the desk had a form that had to be filled out. She wrote down my personal info and then asked me what I had invented.

I said, "A folding bottle."

She said, "Okay, what do you call it?"

"A Fottle."

She she asks, "What else do you have?"

"A folding carton."

"What do you call it?"

"A Farton."

She snickered and said, "Those are silly names for products and one of them sounds kind of crude."

I was so upset I grabbed the form and left the office without even telling her about my folding bucket.

Best wishes Raggedy!

Hoss, we have Coors cans now in 5 liter size. They would work good for your cooler.
