I've been wrong before, though...just ask my wife.

I heard they were moving towards a card program. Stamps are easily counterfeited.

I've got a little bit of heartburn today. (Must be last night's Subway 6" meatball marinara.)

My friends and I had a great scam with the stamps in high school.
They changed the stamps from the yellow to green while we were doing it. We used to all eat free 4-5 times a week.

When I was in HS, Burger King had some scratch off promotion where you had to scratch off the correct path to the prize...well the correct path was based on some formula (I don't know what it was...I never learned it, but my brother did), so you could figure out which ones to scratch off in order to win the prize...some guy who worked at BK snagged a pile of these cards & my brother & his friends took an afternoon to scratch off a pile of free fries & burgers & such.

Shortly thereafter BK wised up & changed the formula or made it random or something.

I prefer shirts without collars...the collars on my shirt never seem to look "right"...they're always bent out of shape.

I almost spelled "collars" as "colors". That would've belonged in glenn's "Green, no Blue! AAAAaaaaaaah!" thread.

I hate the way farmers are always skate boarding on the sidewalks.
(No one said it had to be my random thought.)
