    I could buy one
    Tape and get another free. I accept- Ed the deal, paid for one tape and
    Chose a free one. But since I’ve been
    Repeatedly billed for my free tape.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    They give us a pair of cloth shorts twice a year for all our clothing. When we work in the sugar mills and catch our finger in the millstone, they cut off our hand; when we try to run away, they cut off our leg: both things have happened to me. It is at this price that you eat sugar in Europe.
    Voltaire [Fran├žois Marie Arouet] (1694–1778)
