Esau Wood sawed wood. 
Esau Wood would saw wood! 
Oh, the wood Wood would saw! 
All the wood Esau Wood saw, Esau 
Wood would saw. 
In other words, all the wood Wood 
saw, Esau sought to saw. 
One day, Wood's wood saw would saw no wood. 
Hence all the wood Wood saw was the wood 
Wood would saw if Wood's wood-saw would 
saw wood. 
But because Wood could saw wood only with 
a wood-saw that would saw wood, Esau sought 
a saw that would saw wood. 
Then Esau saw a saw as no other wood-saw 
would saw. 
In fact, of all the wood-saws Wood ever saw 
saw wood, Wood never saw a saw saw as the 
wood-saw Wood saw would saw. 
And even I never saw a saw saw as the wood-saw 
Wood saw would saw until I saw Esau saw wood 
with the wood-saw Wood saw saw wood. 
Now Wood saws wood with the wood-saw Wood 
saw saw wood, so the story has a happy ending. 

From The Old Farmer's Almanac, 2003

- A ram was the cousin of a goat
- An application was a form you filled out for employment
- A program was a TV show
- A cursor used profanity
- Memory was something that you lost with age
- Compress was something you did to the garbage
- If you unzipped anything in public, you hoped not to get caught
- Log on was adding wood to the fire
- Hard drive was a long trip on the road
- A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
- A backup happened to your commode
- You cut with scissors and pasted with glue
- A web was a spider's home
- A virus was the flu

My sister-in law is from Oklahoma and has a slight accent. She has cats and when she lived in the south she would take them to the groomers and have what is called a Line Cut. To her a 'line cut' is when all of the fur hanging down below the cat's tummy is taken off  (because it gets matted or snarled). When she moved to Chicago with my brother, one of the cat's fur got all tangled up and matted during the move so she took it in for a line cut. She was quite surprised when she heard the price as it was twice as much as it was down south. She confirmed with the groomer that he understood what a line cut was and he said, "Yes, I know what  a LION cut is."
It seems her accent came out sounding like LION not LINE,  and this is how her cat was returned to her.
(see PHOTOS below)
She cried for a week...but not as much as the cat. It was November in Chicago and the cat needed all the fur it had."

Gas in car to go to groomers $4.50
