The movie that has been playing at the Cameo Theatre for four months and which has won six awards. 

________________________________________________________________________________

Mavis and I went to see it last night.

 __________________________________________________________________

We had to pay three dollars for a ticket. We discovered that popcorn now costs

eighty cents a box. ____________________________________________________________

which is a awfully high price for popcorn. I enjoyed the movie,

but Mavis didn't. ______________________________________________________________

Because she only likes comedies, and this movie was tragic.

________________________________________________________________________________

Furthermore, Mavis complained that her popcorn was too salty. Which

________________________________________________________________________________

led us to believe that fifty of the eighty cents goes for salt.

________________________________________________________________________________

Poindexter was given a copy of the Guinness Book of World Records

________________________________________________________________________________

for his birthday. This book which has been a best seller for years

________________________________________________________________________________

and which almost everyone has read. Poindexter thought about

________________________________________________________________________________

setting a world record. For eating the greatest number of hard-

________________________________________________________________________________

boiled eggs in an hour. He figured that he could eat about 120

________________________________________________________________________________

eggs in an hour. The cost of eggs, though, which is now about

________________________________________________________________________________

seventy-five cents per dozen and the price of salt and pepper which

________________________________________________________________________________

Poindexter always put on hard-boiled eggs. Whichever world record

________________________________________________________________________________

Poindexter may set--if any--he certainly won't set a record for

________________________________________________________________________________

eating hard-boiled eggs.
