    So can we say that. Woodland’s brainchild was a son of a beach?

    ROFL! Good lord, that title is hilarious!

    I mean that in a sad, respectful sort of way, of course. RIP Mr Woodward… *ahem*

    I wonder if he ever bitched about having to stand in line and wait for the cashier to try to get the damn machine to read his flluked up bar code? Frozen veggies especially!

    Remember when every bar code had a 6 at the beginning, a 6 in the middle and a 6 at the end? At least that’s what the book I read in the 70′s said.
