Famous for What, Again??


You may recall my little Gallery of Regrettable Punctuation. Here's another to add to the list: I was nosing around on eBay just now, and happened across this doozy.

Surely these Barnettes aren't related to ME????? (On the other hand, might I have long-lost relatives who are heirs to a huge brewing fortune? In which case, forget I ever quibbled about punctuation.)

Hi, Martha!

Long time no see (or, rather, communicate)

Remember 'Boondoggle' beer?

Come & see me some time ... http://travelrat.wordpress.com

Martha:
Unless you are somehow related to Adolphus Busch I, the founder of Anheuser-Busch, you are very likely not the heir to a huge brewing fortune. I've worked as a professional brewer, and I can attest that the only way to make a small fortune in brewing is to start with a large fortune.

However, if you're related to someone who can provide you with good beer, surely that's worth more than mere money, right?

Ouch! Hey, Martha...talk about small world. Someone just recommended this great podcast by someone named Martha Barnette to me. Boy, it's been a gazillion years since CIS, hasn't it!
