The customer had tried to buy the gloves at the Shell station across the street, but when the clerk there refused to sell them, the customer went to the Amoco instead and bought the gloves there. The clerk at the Shell station then called the police to report a violation of the zoning ordinance.
An Inclusive Litany
It seems quite ironic that flesh eaters have been killed en masse while stuffing their faces with pieces of tortured flesh. They then complain about automatic weapons, guns, and knives while they sit only miles away from weapons of mass destruction that could wipe out millions. Yet they continue to ignore the consequences of that quivering piece of flesh right at the end of their fork. Just as vampires, most humans are well suited as a metaphor for the whole human race.
MARYLAND COUPLE PLANS
HONORING TURKEY COMPANIONS
Please join us on Tuesday, November 26, at 4:30 P.M. for a Thanksgiving celebration in honor of our two turkey companions, Mila and Priscilla. Dinner will comprise a potluck of vegetarian dishes and several friends have been invited to share the feast. Our purpose in holding this holiday dinner is to draw attention to the friendly, companionable and affectionate nature of turkeys and to join with others throughout the country who have elected to adopt turkeys rather than eat them.
We adopted Mila and Priscilla in October 1990 from Farm Sanctuary, a non-profit group in Watkins Glen, New York that rescues abused farm animals and gives them permanent homes. Mila and Priscilla live happily with nine rescued chickens with whom they forage, dust bathe, and enjoy full run of our three-acre yard. Please join us for this special occasion.
Furthermore, doctors warned that the Tomahawk Chop may produce "repetitive motion injuries."

"Everyone's so concerned about attractive women being hit on and offered all these jobs in exchange for sexual favors," said a friend, who brought this subject to my attention. "But what about the unattractive women? The other side is being completely ignored.[Ed.: Yes, unattractive women who are not targets of sexual harassment may still be the victims of discrimination.]
"For every job that was offered an attractive woman, there may have been a plain woman who was overlooked who was qualified for the job."
I've spent weeks listening to women share painful memories of being hit on by bosses and co-workers. I sympathize. I empathize.
But I never even glanced at the other side of the coin. All along, unattractive women have been paying a high price because they weren't the targets of sexual advances. They were, however, being discriminated against.
We receive these hazy illusions like a narcotic necessary to bear life. But what happens to us when, disintoxicated, we learn what we are? Lost among babblers in a night in which we can only hate the appearance of light which comes from babbling. The self-acknowledged suffering of the disintoxicated is the subject of this book...
His is a journey marked by the questioning of experience itself, until what is reached is sovereign laughter, non-knowledge, and a Presence in no way distinct from Absence, where "the mind moves in a strange world where anguish and ecstasy coexist."
Jeffries was quoted as saying that the destruction of the space shuttle Challenger should be applauded because it deterred white people from "spreading their filth throughout the universe."
For the next 90 minutes the woman who has become an unwilling symbol of publicly funded obscenity proceeds to make her accusers look awfully silly.... Midway through the show, and without fanfare, she takes off her dress to reveal a black corset. She pours Jell-O into the bra cups, and sashays around the table with her breasts jiggling obediently.
First, the dissertation investigates gender symbolism of milk, eggs, fruits, vegetables and meat. Milk and eggs are most feminine because they are products of females' reproductive abilities. Produce is feminine, relating to the mythology of the female gatherer, and symbolic of the reproductive nature of "Mother Earth." Fruits are more feminine than vegetables because they are ripened ovaries of plants. Meat is the most masculine. Meat is associated with male provisioning, hunting, and killing. Women are expected to eat produce and men are expected to eat milk, eggs, and meat. For women, nutrition means light and non-fattening. For men, nutrition means nutrient dense and strength-building.... This is consistent with a domination interpretation in which men symbolically dominate women and animals by the totemic oral incorporation of their reproductive capabilities and muscle, drawing strength from this act...
The second section concentrates on specific traits that are seen to be feminine in fruits and vegetables. Feminine traits are the presence of seeds, sweetness, roundness, juiciness, softness, smoothness, smallness and seasonality. Tubers are also masculine. Warm colors are feminine and cool colors are masculine in the produce context.
The third section examines usage of fruits and vegetables from a gender and social class perspective... Professional men eat a less feminine set of items than professional women... Working class women and men do not differ in stated usage, reflecting the working class female's deference to her husband in the area of food.
