    I can NOT believe “Yes, we DO wear shoes.” not only wasn’t #1, but didn’t even make the list!? Whaaaa!!??

    People ask me that ALL the time!!

    I think you need to change it to “Kentucky bourbon is the only whisky you’ll ever need”. It’s not bourbon unless it’s made in Kentuky so your statement makes no sense.

    Once I had a girl at Disney World ask me if I owned shoes. She was also curious as to whether or not we had paved roads! Lol
