I'm sure most of you have seen this humorous list before, but my mom sent me it in an e-mail recently, and I thought I'd post it to the site.

Em,
I found an old newspaper clipping while digging for something else the other day. I remember the day your dad clipped it out of the newspaper and hung it on our kitchen bulletin board. While I don’t have an author and I may not have the entire column, the date on the back of the clipping is October 3, 1992.
