Friday Brain Teaser!

Be careful with your exclamation marks!

Riding up Main Street the other day, I noticed a sign outside a nightclub! You may have seen it too! It reads:

Dine!
Drink!
Dance!

An exclamation point after “drink”? I can see that. I can also condone using one after “dance” under certain circumstances. But “dine”?

This week’s Friday Brain Teaser is to come up with a situation wherein you could say “Dine!” (exclamation mark and all) without sounding like an idiot.

  1. Said to a condemned man by the prison guard who’s late for his kid’s tee ball game.

  2. Incorrect! The guard, like any sane person, would yell “Eat!”

  3. Said by that guy on the Subway commercials who’s always yelling “Eat fresh!” Isn’t it the same thing, really?

  4. in response to the Dine! request:

    What’s the name of the Cincinnati artist, now in New York, went to U.C., grandfather had a hardware store. . .what was his name??? I’ve got it! Dine! Jim Dine!

  5. And this week’s winner is… jane durrell!
