Dear AppleSauce:   What is the weirdest job you have ever had? Mine is a pot lighter, when we get up early in the morning to warm orchards during a frost.
                                    — Left the Farm

Dear Left.  
A pot lighter, hmmm? Dear Applesauce had the exact same job title working for Mark McCants when he first started out. It did not require getting out of bed so early, however. To the contrary, there were some days none of us could get out of bed at all!
Dear Applesauce:   Is there a synonym for synonym?
                             --Thesaurus Suzy
Dear Suzy.  Poecilonym or metonym, obviously. Just don’t make the mistake of thinking either is a synonym for the other. Answering this tedious question was so tiresome, Dear Applesauce has to lie down for a somnolence!
