      OK Shirley,
      But did you hear about the time my son Steven was in the hospital, and I wanted to get some Chup as a treat for his cat that was stuck in the house alone?

      I went to the pet store and looked all over the shelves but could not find any Chup for his cat. Finally I went to the cashier at the front of the store and asked if they carried any Chup for cats. The cashier drew herself up and in a haughty voice responded, “I’m sorry sir, but we do not sell cat-chup here, - try the supermarket.”
