Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand. — Mark Twain

On my way to a picnic, I stopped at a fast-food place to order a quart of potato salad.

“We don’t sell it by the quart,” the clerk snapped. “Okay, then give me two pints, please,”

I replied. I’m proud to say I held my tongue when she asked, “Do you want it in one container?”😱😳😐😎
