Virtuous paper bag
Oh Master to be virtue
I wouldn’t take this litterally.
How much certainly will fit in the standard paper bag, anyway?
Master Bates, should not write instructions during orgasms.
Not failing a responsibility in conduct of oneself, is a good habit to get into.
However, if you get into too many habits….The Catholic Church will excommunicate you.
Two pecks, or one kenning, or half a bushel, or a petrige in a partree.
Standard paper bags and non-standard paper bags must never cross.
Such would entail a fall in public virtue.

And if you still haven’t got the headache you were seeking, be aware that the capacity of a barrel has been defined in different ways over the years, being 31.5 gallons if it held wine, but 32 gallons when the… Read more »
IMP: 1 Gallon – 160 Fluid ounces.
USA: 1 gallon – 128 Fluid ounces.
That nearly caused me to crash a Cessna 182
The wing tanks carry 92 US Gallons. I made my Flightplan calculations on 92 Imperial Gallons
I have never come across any conscience trash so far.
Wow! Self-disposing garbage!
The spirit of Stanley Unwin lives on.
