   Lissen up, young'un! When I was a kid, I had to git up offa the couch
and walk *all the way across the living room* - in my stockinged feet,
mind you! - allllll that way over to th' durn TeeVee just to change th'
channel! None o' yer fancy-schmancy re-motes back in *my* day!

   THEN: I hadda walk all that way back agin. And you know what!?!? Nine
times outta ten, my goldarn pig of a little sister ate up all my Popcorn
afore I could get back and watch another Lost in Space. Prime Time, doncha
