    In the United States all business not transacted over the telephone is accomplished in conjunction with alcohol or food, often under conditions of advanced intoxication.

    Therefore the love which us doth bind,
    But fate so enviously debars,
    Is the conjunction of the mind,
    And opposition of the stars.
