    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I had the exact same reaction several years back while watching a Simpsons Halloween episode. They had a book that Lisa thought was entitled "How to Cook Humans." The dust blew off to reveal it was really called "How to Cook For Humans." Lisa blew more dust off to reveal it was "How to Cook Forty Humans," and finally the last bit of dust revealed it was truly called "How to Cook for Forty Humans."

    Anyway, every time I write a check in the amount of $40 (literally, every single time) I remember that episode and am sure I'm spelling it correctly because with some dust covering "forty humans" it can be "for humans," but the same cannot be said for dust covering the words "fourty humans."

    Even better than I before E.
