From the Monster raving Looney Party website:





Think a gallon of petrol is expensive?



This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.



Diet Apple Juice 16 oz £1.29 ……….. £10.32 per gallon.



Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz £1.19 ……….. £9.52 per gallon.



Ocean Spray 16 oz £1.25 ………… £10.00 per gallon.



Brake Fluid 12 oz £3.15 …………. £33.60 per gallon.



Vick’s Nyquil 6 oz £8.35 …….. £178.13 per gallon.



Pepto Bismol 4 oz £3.85 ……….. £123.20 per gallon.



Tippex (White out)7 oz £1.39 …………………….. £5.42 per gallon.



Evian water 9 oz £1.49 ……….. £21.19 per gallon.

£21.19 for WATER and the buyers don’t even know the source.

(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

You don’t even want to compare it with perfume or after shave.

Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?

So they have you hooked for the ink. Someone calculated the cost of the ink at

(you won’t believe it ….. but it is true ……..) £5,200 per gal … (five thousand two hundred pounds)

So, the next time you’re at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run on water, or Tippex, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or, God forbid, Printer Ink!

Just a little humour to help ease the pain of your next trip to the petrol pump.
