Wouldn’t you expect laundry workers to decrease, eventually becoming depressed and depleted? Likewise, bedmakers might be debunked, baseball players debased, bulldozer operators degraded, organ donors delivered, software engineers detested, and underwear manufacturers debriefed. And won’t all composers one day decompose? On a more positive note, perhaps we can hope politicians will someday be devoted.

You probably put on a few pounds.” “That’s just it, Doc, I know I haven’t gained a single pound since the last time I wore it.” “Well, then,” said Doc, “You must have a case of Furniture Disease.” “What in the world is Furniture Disease?” asked Max.

“That’s when your chest starts sliding down into your drawers.”
