Friday, I paid $3.89 a gallon for gas. Three. Eighty. Nine. I can yell and moan and stamp my foot all I please, but you and I both know it'll probably cost even more next time I need to fill up.

Considering the high cost of fuel, taxes, insurance, yada-yada, it might be cheaper to just dump my car and take a taxi to work. Although... I haven't checked taxi rates lately, but they're probably way up, too.

And that I'm staying out of sight just in case any of my neighbors are thinking about propitiating the volcano gods in hopes of trading for better gas prices.
Today's Words Gone Wild are exceedingly weird, too.

See what you can do with these:
