"I'm a Redskins fan, and I'm sure someone will call in and knock up the Redskins."

That should be newsworthy.

"You're one in a hundred."

Special, but not as special as one in a million, I suppose.

"Peace on earth, goodwills toward men."

What, no Salvation Army Thrift Stores?

"North High, the operative word being North High."

The operative word being "Go back to North High and learn the definition of a "word," please.

"Bill Clinton is a chronicle liar."

Some would agree with this statement.


"Unlegible and not able to read."

It couldn't be read and it couldn't read.

"I didn't mean to delay the wrong message."

Sorry, but you just did, friend.

"The most minutest of details."

What could be more minuter than that?

"I heard this from an incredible source."

Who, the Incredible Hulk? I find that hard to believe.

"When you get behind your vehicle drunk . . ."

Better to push that car home than try to drive it.

"The third time is a charmer."

Yes, always the life of the party.

"Visible by sight."

Is that like "audible by hearing"?

". . . local paper which I prescribe for."

"Perhaps maybe"

"Living survivors"
