8. People buy snack foods with the half-life of plutonium but insist on free-range eggs.

7. Town folk spend beaucoup bucks on ear corn to feed squirrels.

6. Computer-smart kids can’t count back change or read a non-digital clock.

2. Warnings on chemical labels telling you not to drink the stuff.
