Thank you so much for the lovely deli-style pickle. Very juicy and crisp.

My pet alligator is eating the crap you sold me. I hope you both encrustulate.

Uncle Gravy once ate me.

When life gives you a lemon, put it on eBay and I will bid on it.

Sun goes up, pants go up. Sun goes down, pants go down.
