Dear AppleSauce:   Why do you think glue doesn’t stick to the inside of the glue container?
          --  Sticky Fingers

Dear Sticky.    Oh, it sticks! Have you never tried to open the spout of a used tube of Super Glue? Likewise, eggs will stick to a Teflon pan if you run it through the dishwasher enough times. Skip the hassle altogether and buy yourself a stapler then go eat your breakfast at Denny’s. 
Dear Applesauce.  Why is hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia such a long term if it means “a fear of long words”? (This is true – sesquipedalophobis is another term for the same phobia).
   --  Braveheart

Dear Braveheart.   If phycologists do not emotionally torture their patients then who will?
P.S.    The term for DA’s greatest fear: last call!
