Comment: I resently purchased a 3 pc set and a 2 pc set of inexpensive
luggage. The odor that both sets have is awful. How can I get rid of the
odor, and is the odor there because I purchased a cheaper set luggage.

Did you buy the luggage from the Mafia? If so, you might want to check under that false suitcase bottom. The odor could be the least of your worries.

Yeah he does, and having to find a new actor every day is real headache for the production.

Of course it is. That's why it's called "ham"burger. Yeah, that's why.

Comment: I was looking over the latest UL update #270 and I looked at your
story about Marlin Perkins. There is a link imbedded in the story for
Marlin Perkins that takes you to the St. Louis Walk of Fame website.
Interestingly the same photo you used in your story is on that website.
However, the photo is reversed. Now you have me wondering which side of
his head did Marlin Perkins part his hair?

Comment: The attached web site describes a type of drink/shot (a toe shot)
that contains a human toe. Is this an actual drink or is this made up? I
don't believe it is but a co-worker believes it is real.
Thank you for your help in deterning if this is real or not.

John Cena has said that some of the wrestlers' pages on MySpace are the real thing (his is, for instance).

Yeah, I don't care either.

Comment: Dear Snopes,
I was wondering about a email that I got from a sender that my cotacts
finder did not recognize. The sender's name is "camille something"(not
capitalized) and the title/ subject of the email is "tough....but i got a
10". Please reply because I am scared to open it because of the risk that
it is a virus email.

P.S.: I don't recall meeting anyone with the name "camille".

Dog and Beth decided to go ahead with the wedding. The funeral was after the wedding. I think they may have postponed the honeymoon, though.

It's absolutely true. This was a marketing ploy to counter Dairy Queen's Penis Buster Parfait

JITB's egg rolls have "Anchovy Flavored Fish Sauce (Anchovy Fish Extract, Salt, Sugar)." There is no anchovy in the taco sauce or the taco beef filling, although the filing has Worcestershire sauce. JiTB has a page that specifically flags fish as an ingredient in their products. Ingredients

The bottle of Lea & Perrins Wocestershire sauce in my refrigerator lists anchovies as an ingredient (the fourth one, after vinegar, molasses, and high fructose corn syrup).

Any chance we can start an UL that Dr. Pepper contains anchovies? [Wink]

Comment: I know you are busy but I did not know who else to turn to. My
friends and I have a 20 year old argument we need settled. What does the
W on female clothing stand for? For example a size 16W would be a normal

It stands for "Wicca". Y'know those satanic cleaning products? And the "K" on the food that's controlled by the Jews? The Wicca people wanted in on the action. So, a long time ago, they got got clothes (and even some of the women's shoes!) to have a "W" on them.

Now, don't be afraid. Wiccians aren't evil, or working with the devil. But they do want to have some of the wealth.
