If I hadn't known there was at least one "z" in each one, I would have probably gotten a lot more wrong. I have definitely heard of all the ones I missed, but I have never had them.

P.S. PF--go look at Fred's and my "mole" conversation in today's dinner thread.

Fred is so fun to joke with because he gets my humor (which you do too). He is SO quiet in person though! Still funny though, once you get him talking!
