All boxed up?

Today is Boxing Day in the United Kingdom. And wonder how many folks in the U.S. are thinking “Boxing? Is that because they don’t have guns for “‘Shooting Day?”

And in California, home of the “10 cents for even a lousy paper bag” law,  people hear ” Boxing Day” and think “Are they charging for a cardboard box next?”

The story from Dallas is that Tony Romo is in “no condition to practice.’. And Cowboys fans are thinking “that never stopped him from playing.”
