2A fashionably tan man sat casually at the bat stand, lashing a handful of practice bats. The manager, a crabby old bag of bones, passed by and laughed, “You’re about average Jack and can’t you lash faster than that?”.
3Jack had had enough, so he clambered to his feet lashed bats faster than any man had ever lashed bats. As a matter of fact, he lashed bats so fast that he seemed to dance. The manager was aghast. “Jack, you’re a master bat lasher he gasped. Satisfied at last. Jack sat back and never lashed another bat.
4The throng of thermometers from the Thuringian Thermometer Folks arrived on Thursday. There were a thousand thirty-three thick thermometers, though, instead of a thousand thirty-six thin thermometers,
5which was three thermometers fewer than the thousand thirty six we were expecting, not to mention that they were thick ones rather than thin ones.
6We thoroughly thought that we had ordered a thousand thirty-six, not a thousand thirty-three, thermometers, and asked the Thuringian Thermometer Folks to reship the Thermometers; thin not thick.
7They apologized for sending only a thousand thirty-three thermometers rather than a thousand thirty-six and promised to replace the thick thermometers with thin thermometers.

89I'm very excited by the upcoming election I'm very excited by the upcoming election. Here in the United States we choose a new president every four years. This year we're electing a new president because president Bush has served two terms. He can't run for the office of president any more. Why is this? One of the most famous presidents of all times was Franklin D. Roosevelt. He was elected so many times - a total of four times - that congress decided to limit the number of times a president can serve. Since then, a president can only be chosen two times. In other words, the president can serve two terms.
