A man went to his dentist because he feels something wrong in his mouth. The dentist examines him and says, “that new upper plate I put in for you six months ago is eroding. What have you been eating?”
The man replies, “all I can think of is that about four months ago my wife made some asparagus and put some stuff on it that was delicious…Hollandaise sauce. I loved it so much I now put it on everything — meat, toast, fish, vegtables, everything.”
“Well,” says the dentist, “that’s probably the problem. Hollandaise sauce is made with lots of lemon juice, which is highly corrosive. It’s eaten away your upper plate. I’ll make you a new plate, and this time use chrome.” “Why chrome?” asks the patient. To which the dentist replies, “It’s simple. Everyone knows that there’s no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise!”

A different fruit (a total of twelve) is buried in every one of the following lines.
Example: A word is considered ‘buried’ when it can be read like P A R I S in the sentence “Grand-pa(pa ris)es at seven every morning.” Can you detect them?
Ah! If I get my good ship home
I’ll find a tempting spot,
Where mayhap pleasant flowers will bloom,
And there I’ll shape a charming cot.
Where bees sip nectar in each flower,
And Philomel on hawthorn rests,
I’ll shape a rustic, sun-kissed bower –
A bower meet for angel guests.
Then she who lives and loves with me,
Sing our days of calm repose,
Sole monarch of the flowers will be –
For Myra is indeed a rose.

Thursday’s Quizzler is……….
You awake inside a small transparent capsule sitting on the surface of Venus. From a small speaker you hear a voice that says, “We will leave you here either for a day or a year. If you choose to stay a day, we will give you $1 million. If you choose to stay a year, we will give you $2 million. Either way, you will have sufficient food and water. We will make sure the temperature is a constant 70 degrees Fahrenheit. We will also supply cable TV.”
What is your choice? (Don’t let money decide your answer).
