    Citations for the words of others used in creating this sentence:

    (1) Miss Smathers, 2nd grade teacher
    (2) White, E.B. Charlotte's Web, p. 12
    (3) Ibid., p. 43
    (4) Mr. Neuman, 6th grade teacher
    (5) Smathers, op. cit.
    (6) Dr. Acula, MD, pediatrician
    (7) Ms. Walters, 1st grade teacher
    (8) Mr. Bronski, 6th grade teacher
    NOTE: All the words of others used to create this sentence not otherwise attributed are the words of "Mom" and "Dad" '

    and swapped a few names around, then you could be justifiably aggrieved that I had plagiarised your work.
    LOL! I'd have to offset my feeling of being ripped of with the gratification that you thought it was funny enough to quote.

    Did you like the name of the Doctor? That's a joke I did steal.

    I have to steal other people's jokes because I'm not funny. : (

    You DID think it was funny, right? You're not just saying it?

    Did you get it? Dr. Acula = Dracula. That's funny, right? A little funny anyway. Isn't it?
