Here are some disturbing sentence fragments I recently have overheard:
-- "I managed not to burn myself, but ..."
-- "The best use of Velveeta is ..."
-- "... but John Gruden, my wife, I'll never forgive him ..."
-- "... but if we got half a dozen brown girls to entertain us, we'd be fine."
Fortunately, I didn't hear the other parts of these sentences.
Why don't human beings have earlids -- you know, the aural equivalent of eyelids?
