Oh, it would be effective all right. That's only a few posts containing it and I already want to shoot myself in the face

Now this is in my head.

I know its 70s(?) TV... Crisp advert maybe...

"what fryeth Friar? Tis fine roaste pork, it feedeth many, yet costeth not a lot"

Now I want crisps.

And pork.

Well I didn't find that one, but this one must be a relative.

I'm actually quite scared that I knew all of them the second they started and knew all the words and it's been how many years?

1) Clearing immigration and customs at ORD so quickly yesterday that I was able to make the connecting flight 4 hours earlier than the one I was originally booked onto.

2) Arriving at my home airport and finding that my checked luggage had caught the same, earlier, plane as me.

It sort of made up for my fourth and final flight of the outbound trip being 2 hours late after I'd travelled for over 24 hours and crossed 7 time zones......

Getting home earlier than expected was a nice bonus
