    If memory serves, C. Montgomery Burns from “The Simpsons” answers his telephone with “ahoy-hoy.” (Did Bell say, “Watston, come here. I need you” or “Ahoy, Watson. Come here; I need you” when his telephone first worked?) Also, isn’t Italian spreadable beer already like Australian Vegemite?

    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    Yes, that is true. I wondered why Burns said that.

    That’s just over 7.1 feet/second.

    The average walking speed of a human being taken as 4 mph. is just under 5.87 feet per second.

    Walking, someone would have finished that distance in 17 hours 15 minutes; a difference of 3 hours and 1 minute.

    No wonder the Italians lost the war. Beer is for drinking. Could you imagine a German Oktoberfest where they served sandwiches?

    Isn’t most beer spreadable? Where do beer bellies come from?

    Ahoy and Hello – back in 50s (when pay phones were 5c)
    “It’s your nickle – start talking!”
    or, remember “Duffy’s Tavern – Duffy ain’t here”

    Or “City Morgue – you stab ’em, we slab ’em!”
    would be useful today if caller ID reveals telemarketer or solicitor.

    Local radio station had a deal going back in 60s – if you answered the phone “Pepsi Please” you’d win a prize.
    But if it was’t – well, red face ville!

    Imagine in all the history of an alternate earth the change is that they say “ahoy” instead of “hello.”

    Vegemite and spreadable not even vaguely similiar.
    Vegemite is made from the leftover yeast after all the beer is drained out of the vat.
