My daughter will probably try the recipe--it's a little different
than (or is it from?) her usual. Fix that phrase--it's not the
same as her usual.
We did decide it was a "tall tale" because no one but an idiot
would have signed the charge slip and if one did, it would have
been very easy to get it credited.
What about the disgruntled boy/girl friend who has a load of
pre-mixed concrete dumped in the convertible of two-timing lover?
Now that one I can picture!

Not illegal, but it's an Urban Legend that has been making the rounds
of the net for years. The four most famous net hoaxes are the Neiman-
Marcus cookie storie, Craig Shergold's quest for business cards or
postcards (based on something that did happen, but it was long ago,
he's alive and well and an adult and is *not* soliciting cards), the
proposed modem tax, and the Good Times virus.
