Back in grade school, there was a contest to see which class could collect the most Campbell’s soup can labels.
My brother took the labels from all of the cans we had.
Mom got mad because she didn’t know what was in each can.
My brother blamed me, and despite my denials, I got spanked.
In the meantime, I ripped off a few dozen labels every time we went to the grocery store.
On the last day of the contest, I turned in my stack.
My class won.
“See, he lied!” said my brother.
And I got spanked again.
