The only thing it has to do with woodworking is burning wood to make food
taste good, but I have to share this one anyway.
I was at Wally-World looking at garden stuff with SWMBO. I was standing in
front of a stack of grills, not looking at them, when the garden department
manager called out to me "Hey, I just marked those down to $30!"
