Hawker bloopers

At the Mariner game today, a hawker was selling both Dibs ice cream and Mike's Hard Lemonade.

Let us set aside the strangeness of the same hawker selling kid snacks and adult beverages. I guess they have a limited number of portable receptacles that keep things very cold.

What was strange--and disturbing--is that the guy kept shouting this (and, with apologies to Dave Barry, I am not making this up):

"Mike's Hard! I've got Dibs!"
"Mike's Hard! I've got Dibs!"
"Mike's Hard! I've got Dibs!"

Wife and I were, to my knowledge, the only people doing the Beavis and Butt-head laugh at all of that.

That was worth a good chuckle. My favorite is a special ed test--the Woodcock-Johnson Test. What, exactly, does that measure?
