You know you're a rhetoric student when... find stuff funny that "common folk" AKA normal people just don't get. I found myself in a 7-11 trying to explain to a couple cashiers the humour in their two sandwich bar names. See one's called "hearty choices." Sounds good! I'd expect to be full, maybe a bit too full, but that's alright, there's always later. And the other is called simply "better choices." Hearty choices beside better choices. Which one will I choose? X or X+1? It's poor marketing on 7-11 and funny for me, but they didn't get it. One of them said "better choices are more salady." It hurts me that I couldn't explain that.

p.s. word of the day = salady (adj): pertaining to salad
