Erica: Well, what are you going to do about it?
Joanna: Go on strike! Picket!

Just got back from Chicago. Not the city, the show. It was super fun. Since the tickets were free, the total cost of the evening was $5 for Chik-Fil-A, $10 for parking, and whatever gas money it takes to get from Catonsville to Baltimore city. Not bad for a night at the theatre.
Coincidence, evidently. Wikipedia says "scab" was just an old insult.
Which is good, because it keeps reality from detracting from your cleverness.
Heh. Although I might not really mind losing the cleverness angle if I got to know that the term came from such a silly pun.
it were as cool as we are.

In the interest of accuracy, I should point out that what I actually said was, "It won't get better if you pick it." (Or "picket." Whichever you prefer.)
