    I don't think they sell 7-UP in the theater, Maybe they should,because the sodas would be much less expensive

                      Well, LLapp, the Imperial British unit is the Holmes. 1 Holmes = 2.25 minor clues. It takes an average of 2 KiloHolmes to solve a major mystery. The Belgian unit is the Poirot, which is roughly 1H = 1.62P. Comparatively, the American measurement unit the Columbo is 1H = 1.98C. Clouseaus were briefly used by the French, but fell out of favor since calculations tend to be full of mistakes.

                        Don't remove the comma! That would ruin my joke!

                        The comma is gone, but the joke is still funny!

                          What is it you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the streetlight? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it and pull it down. Hey. That's a pretty good idea. I'll give you the streetlight, Mary.

                            Yes, but not while I was solving the quote.
