What's in a Name?

"I don't think this is quite the story I was referring to when I first mentioned the wheeled rubbish bin."

"What were you expecting?"

"Well...not this."

"Must admit, it's not what I expected either."

"If it was, I'd have somethin' to say about it. It's not everyday you see some singing sanitary engineer loading a precious rubbish bin with babies."

"Baby bucket."

"I beg your pardon?"

"It's not a rubbish bin. It's a baby bucket."

"Damn it all..."


And this brings us to the six o' clock news.

Good evening folks, it is a fine thing you are listening to us because our news is going to save your lives.

Today, we had a giant traffic jam because some idiot refused to go on a stoplight. He argued with everyone that it ought to be called a golight when it was green, and only a stoplight when it was red. However, the makers of fat-free yogurt tubes have declared that the name 'golight' has already been taken. What is the world coming to? Are we running out of ways to name things?

In other news, the inventor of the pie plate is suddenly making big bucks off of his newly published book entitled, "How to use a pie plate when you haven't any pie". Apparantly there are some rather explicit ways to use a pie plate. Dick Dishman has that story...


But thankfully, we have come to a commercial break.

The End
