    I went to the Patent Office trying to register some of my inventions.

    I went to the main desk to sign in and the lady at the desk had a form that had to be filled out. She wrote down my personal info and thenasked me what I had invented.

    I said, "A folding bottle."

    She said, "Okay, what do you call it?"

    "A Fottle."

    "What else do you have?"

    "A folding carton." "What do you call it?"

    "A Farton."

    She snickered and said, "Those are silly names for products and one of them sounds kind of crude."

    I was so upset by her comment that I grabbed the form and left the office without even telling her about my folding bucket.
