    Not only was I fresh out of Grey Poupon, but speaking of yachts... to steal a Kuro5hin reference... my monocle needed some polishing, and I was fresh out of monocle polish!

      they sell Grey Poupon and monocle polish on the same aisle at the grocery store, so Jeebs doesn't have to break into a sweat to procure them

      Years and years ago, one of my employers gave each employee a "night on the town" as a bonus for making a particularly tough deadline. The deal was: a limo for the evening to take you and your spouse/significant other to the posh restraunt of your choice (such as Aujourd'Hui at the 4 Seasons Hotel).

      Of course, I did it a little differently: we took the limo to a local pizza place, and to use up the allocated cash, brought several friends along, then still with the limo, went to an ice cream place - even got a cone for the driver, dropped off surprise cones to friends who lived nearby, then went home.

      Anyway, we were sitting at a red light in downtown Boston, and the people in the car next to us were staring, so my husband, who was wearing a tux with tails for full effect (I on the other hand had on jeans & a t-shirt), presses the button, the window slides down, he sits up straight, glances over, and asks "Pardon me, but do you have any Grey Poupon?"

      After about 10 miliseconds of complete disbelief, they burst out laughing, the light changed, and we drove off.
