Maybe I'm dense, but I just realized the symbolism behind a condom branded as Trojan.

Is that really the image a condom manufacturer should maintain?
  • A Trojan horse is a contraption that holds many foreign soldiers. (They were from Greece, a country with many islands, so the soldiers were probably good seamen.)
  • A Trojan horse looks appealing, so the enemy accepts the gift and brings it inside its walls.
  • While enjoying the gift of a Trojan horse, the recipient doesn't worry that it might be dangerous and the soldiers slip out and attack


Suppose we built this large wooden beaver...

I have too many volumes that are overdue. I need to go to the Library and ask a Librarian to check my balance.

If you write digits and symbols in acetone on your finger nails you're using reverse polish notation.

For the lispers in the crowd: Oops, upside the car!

I want to start a rock band called Sisyphus and the Rock.
<Sisyphus> Are you ready to rock?
<Crowd> Not yet!
<Sisyphus> Are you ready to rock?
<Crowd> Almost!
<Sisyphus> Are you ready to rock?
<Crowd> Not anymore!
