Greetings and good day


What a wonderful surprise I had, because I arrived home to find The Daily

News awaiting me by my door after having been approached by a friendly

telesales consultant. I could not help but wonder though about the

following ad in Daily News, dated May 25 2009, under 610 Clothing: Pesky

Pets Services Winter Special: Have your home exterminated. Get rid of

AUNTS. Zap does the job in 24 hours. Phone 082 DEAD ANT [Firstly I’m

trying to ponder the correlation between ants unless it’s like, uh, ants

in the pants? But an antanthology (presunably a small antology although my

submission of this hitherto unkown word was summarily rejected by urban

dictionary) dedicated to ridding aunts? Well, that’s another story.
