Sears & Roebuck; Montgomery Ward ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sun, 4 Feb 1996 01:10:38 +0000 From: "Albert E. Krahn" Subject: Knife and Fork Here in the shadow of Miller Brewery the proper expression is "knife and fork." This reminds me of an old Peanuts cartoon. Charlie Brown notes that it is raining "cats and dogs" outside. Snoopy, the dog, in his balloon, verbalizes the following: "One does not say 'cats and dogs.' The proper expression is 'dogs and cats.'" (Or something close to this.) ------------- AKRAHN[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]IBM.NET Al Krahn Milwaukee Area Technical College Milwaukee WI 53233 414/297-6519 fax 414/297-7990 home 414/476-4025
