It occurred to me that I should have cited the full proverb once again:
"You pays your money and you takes your choice."
An old teacher of mine (from NY) always used to say it as:
"You pays your money and you takes your cherse." Was this idiolectal or
dialectal? I always thought it was the former (and indicative of his
sense of humor). He recently passed away, so I can't ask him.
