And one more thing.

From "Duck Soup."

Minister of Labor:
The Department of Labor wishes to report that the workers of Freedonia are demanding shorter hours.
Very well, we'll give them shorter hours. We'll start by cutting their lunch hour to twenty minutes.

The above is a prelude to something I've heard approximately 97 times just today. This week is not a short week. This week has seven days. What we are having is a short work-week.

Stop it. OK?
