I tell you it was hot, and people power

ought to be encouraged :

Here's a little curiosity going the rounds
that is good. When we say it is good, that
is sufficient for you:
"Habit" is hard to overcome. If you
take off the first letter it does not change
"a bit." If you take off another you still
have a "bit" left. If you take off still
another, the whole of "it" remains. If
you take off still another it is not "t"
totally used up. All of which goes to
show that if you wish to be rid of a "habit"
you must throw it off altogether.
That's the way we stopped chewing to
